TRANSLATION AS ADVENTURE


My career started by graduating from the Czech School of Agriculture, Prague. Then I was a research biochemist, I sold timeshare contracts, worked in the Czech TV - to end up as a translator. From that time, I believe your nature will get you - sooner or later - to do the profession you have been designed for. It definitely did me. I enjoy *creating* translations, not just replacing one word by another. And when I finally, after a 10min combing of the Web, find the right Czech term for a peculiar English word used by farmers at Orkney Islands or surgeons at Mayo Clinic, I feel like a gold digger who has just found a golden nugget.
