KT Czech Translations - Kristina Thew

Native Czech speaker, qualified and experienced freelance translator, holder of the Diploma in Translation from English to Czech, with a distinction in Law and a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists (membership number 28737), Chartered linguist - translator. Volunteer translator for Translators without Borders.

I have been living and working in the UK since 1995 and have a thorough understanding of the English language and culture. I hold the Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English, Grade A. My ties with the Czech Republic remain very strong. I regularly visit my family there, watch Czech TV, read newspapers, periodicals, books etc., in order to keep up with linguistic changes.

My specialisations include LEGAL translation (able to offer UK based certification; broad knowledge of both legal systems) - particular focus on family law; MARKETING & BUSINESS; CLINICAL TRIALS (Information for patients - patient guides, pamphlets, posters, eligibility card, subject participation card, life quality questionnaires); LITERATURE: translation/adaptation of The magic of my name (personalised book for children), also translated short children's books for a market leader, performed voluntary work during the pandemic - various stories for children to help them understand coronavirus. LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT (ten years' experience in the field prior to freelance translation).

Some experience in audio transcription; transcreation and copywriting for holiday rentals and hotels. Trained in proofreading/editing (new products on the market, educational surveys, psychometric testing, various websites, confidentiality statements, labels for food products, humanitarian aid, teaching video subtitles, beauty products etc). Also providing back translation and final linguistic validation of digital cinema packages.

FAMILY LAW: court statements, care plans (child in care), Cafcass case analysis, record of delegated authority, observation of contact, short letters (DNA testing, case updates), social worker's report, section 20 consent, parenting assessments, general legal documents: birth and marriage certificates, divorce consent statements, apostilles.
OTHER LAW: witness statements, public space protection orders, criminal complaint report, data protection notices, code of conduct, non-disclosure agreements, clinical trial contracts, DBS checks, health and safety instructions, fire safety regulations. 
MARKETING and BUSINESS: employee surveys (e.g. hiring process, workplace satisfaction, culture surveys), GDPR compliance projects, customer complaints - giving a voice to employees of multinationals, terms and conditions of business for a firm of solicitors, audio transcription and translation of a business conference, training materials, short marketing slogans and posters, description and instructions for new products on the market, finance - VAT returns, company presentations and reports. OTHER TRANSLATION: humanitarian issues, information/communication for homeless people, Red Cross surveys, severe learning difficulties report, psychological assessment; crucial pandemic information, general medical.

Substantial translation skills were gained by working on a prestigious EU project - Project EQUAL: Competencies for the Labour Market (training programme for the development of key competencies/soft skills for the labour market). I enjoy creative work, have passion for playing with words, with the capacity of producing poetry. I am versatile with regard to text I feel confident to translate, with a remarkable feel for the register.

Full professional Indemnity Insurance and Quality Assurance system in place can give you peace of mind, ensuring timely and accurate translations of the highest quality. I am dedicated and flexible.
