Professional practices Darren Chastney endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I'm an Englishman with an extensive educational background and professional work experience in linguistics, journalism and training.

Being a long-term resident of Slovakia has given me deep insights into both the Slovak and Czech languages (as well as ice hockey). As a translator I mainly specialise in public relations, marketing, sales, web content, media, branding, creative arts, etc. and I'm also happy to consider other sectors.

With my background in journalism I am also an extremely accomplished proofreader, copy-editor and content provider.

My clients value my positive approach, excellent work, fast-turnaround, and communication during projects.

I look forward to partnering your project.
