My name is Ivan Kovacs,
I was born in Budapest and raised around the world as the son of a diplomat. I grew up in a bilingual (English - Hungarian) household and have been educated in the Hungarian, German and English school system(s). I have a degree in anthropology from the University of Sussex in the UK.

I have lived and worked in several countries and I now live in the south-west of Germany, near Tübingen (in a bilingual household; German - English).

I have first done translation work some 12 years ago for a well established NGO in Hungary. In my early twenties I had mainly worked in the social sciences, translating Hungarian academic texts into English. I have also done a fair bit of interpreting for companies moving into the Hungarian market in the mid to late 90s.

After some years spent gardening and working as a mountain bike and trekking guide in the south of Spain, I have again started translating with special focus on legal and technical texts. At the moment I mainly work for a company developing software for Daimler-Chrysler.
I welcome linguistic challenges and as a proud father of a young family am open to work generally.
