Bio
I am a 34 year old academic, translator and editor with eleven years' translation experience. I am currently living in London, researching my PhD, having completed an MA in literature and culture at University College London.

For the last ten years I have been regularly translating contracts, legal and medical documents, business letters and websites, collaborating with a number of British and Czech translation agencies. I am happy to provide references from these agencies for a new client.

I have also translated a number of major documents in the field of art and literature, including 'Cubeca' - the autobiography of Czech artist Karel Kostka; 'Adamek' - the biography of Miroslav Adamek; and the novel 'The Goldminer's Curse' (from which there is an excerpt in my profile).

My translation process involves three stages - an initial translation of Czech to English, then a close editing stage with my native Czech translating partner, before a final edit and proofread in English. I believe that this process ensures the highest standard of language, with both source and target languages edited with native knowledge.

In the interests of quality I only translate Czech-to-English, and not English-to-Czech.

My pricing is highly competitive - GBP 0.06-0.12/word - and I am always willing to negotiate rates depending upon type of document, timescale, and other circumstances.

I look forward to hearing from you!
