Professional practices Ales Horak endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I have been working as a freelance translator since 2007. I am a university graduate in Chemical Engineering (Honours) and have extensive experience in translating technical texts. My course syllabus included some financial, economic and legal topics as well. Thus, I am able to provide you with high-quality translations in these fields too. During my practice, I translated a lot of medical texts, some of them in cooperation with health professionals.

I attended a grammar school specialized in foreign languages which is my biggest passion along with technical matters.

A great advantage is that I translate from several languages and I am able to find the right terminology with help of other language combinations.

Besides the excellent translation experience in my language pairs, I have passive knowledge of some other languages: Russian, Polish, Turkish, Hungarian, Norwegian, Finnish.

Examples of projects:

Operating instructions for heavy machinery (ca. 2,000,000 words)
Chemical process technology (ca. 1,000,000 words)
Material safety data sheets (MSDS), safety data sheets (SDS), or product safety data sheets (PSDS) (ca. 1,000,000 words)
Automotive diagnostic tools (ca. 400,000 words)
ISO Standards (ca. 300,000 words)
Contracts, agreements, memoranda, terms and conditions (ca. 2,000,000 words)
Accounting, invoicing, financial statements, reporting (ca. 500,000 words)
Medical device manuals: cardiology, ophtalmology, coagulometry, oxygen therapy (ca. 400,000 words)
Nutrition, health and wellness - packaging and labelling, healthy lifestyle brochures (ca. 300,000 words)
Biochemistry (ca. 100,000 words)
Agriculture - livestock management software, data sheets on fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides (ca. 500,000 words)

At present, I work for more than 200 translation agencies mainly from Germany, the United States, France, Spain and the United Kingdom and translate from 12 foreign languages into Czech/Slovak. I am a near-native speaker of Slovak. I have all my translations into Slovak proofread by a native speaker.
I can translate into English, German, Spanish and Italian too. Please note that such a translation should be proofread by a native speaker of the target language.

My clients are very satisfied with my work and always come back.
My main focus are projects in the field of Engineering, Machinery, Biology, Chemistry, Medicine, Law, Finance and Business.

Please do not contact me with dumping rates and mass quotes. I receive many job offers and so I choose my clients very carefully.

I am looking forward to our cooperation!
