I have recently expanded my range by taking a two-semester course of legal English at the Faculty of Law, Charles University in Prague and can provide both CZ-ENG and ENG-CZ translations in the field. I am also interested in venturing into subtitling or localisation; as a literary translator (see below), I would also consider text-heavy video games a nice challenge.

As an English Studies major, I feel especially confident translating texts that concern social sciences, literature and other arts, including music (I regularly provide translations for Ostrava Center for New Music)

As a literary translator, I have had the privilege to work on novels and non-fiction by authors ranging from Boris Johnson through William Gibson to Nelson DeMille (see my CV for the full list of ca. 25 books); I believe this to be a testimony to:

- my thoroughness and skill at interpreting the precise meaning of texts in all their nuances
- my stylistic range
- my ability to hunt down all necessary information and vocabulary, since writers often draw inspiration from a wide variety of fields
