Appreciations And Recommendations From Clients:

"Katalin is an extremely talented, professional and prompt translator and we consider her an asset to our team."

"I found her to be very prompt, accurate and a pleasure to work with."

"Outstanding work."


“I have used Katalin's services on many occasions, all for the translations of pharmaceutical PILs which needed to be translated from English to her native language. She was always able to provide the final product quickly and be available within short notice for any project. I am also happy to say that pharmaceutical authorities have always approved the quality of her work. I would gladly work with her if given the opportunity.”
Great Results, Good Value, On Time


“Katalin has translated a number of medical documents for our company, from English to Hungarian. We have found her translation work to be extremely accurate, consistent and reliable. We will certainly be using her for the translation of documents again in the future and would definitely recommend her translation services.”
Great Results, On Time, High Integrity


"Katalin translated for our company, manufacturer of medical devices, accompanying documentation for one of our products. Her approach was very professional: her work was not limited to the sole translation, but she also did a great job in reviewing the source documents and she came up with some insightful suggestions. As we switched from translation agencies as language services provider to freelance translators, Katalin was very helpful in setting up this type of collaboration which was very useful also in communication with translators in other language pairs and I am very happy with the result. We will definitely use Katalin’s services in the future. "

“Katalin has provided translation services. Translation was related to finance/legal areas for the international website. She has always delivered tasks in time, proofreaders who checked the results have confirmed high quality of translation. We would definitely recommend Katalin's services.”
Great Results, On Time, High Integrity

“Katalin has worked with us on a number of important projects, and is thoroughly recommended. She respects deadlines, and turns work round very quickly. She also thinks outside the box. One of the key skills for a good translator is to challenge the source text, e.g. if there is a lack of clarity, missing or inappropriate text. Katalin is very good at identifying these kinds of issues.”
Great Results, Personable, Expert

"Katalin has worked with us on several large projects English to Hungarian, always respects deadlines, and has delivered high volumes of work to tight timescales. Her work has always been to the highest professional standard. A difficult aspect of our first large job with Katalin, was that there were lots of changes from the client, one minute the job was off, then on, then more files, etc. This can be very disconcerting for a translator as it doesn’t help them plan their work. Katalin dealt extremely well with these initial difficulties, and was extremely professional throughout. She communicated very well with the project management team, and we established an excellent working relationship with the client. Some of the project files were difficult to format in Trados, and Katalin dealt with this very well. We value her very highly as part of our freelancer team, and she is our first choice translator in the English to Hungarian language pair.”

“Katalin is a professional translator with whom I have worked with great success. She is extremely dependable and a pleasure to work with.”
Great Results, Expert, On Time

PRO-certified English-Hungarian translator
BA in English Linguistics
IoL DipTrans/LC: Technology (Med) & Social Science

Studies in Science (Medical, Pharmaceutical, Chemical), Business, Communication, Marketing, Computer Science and Literature

RESUME AND REFERENCES are available upon request.

15 years of experience in translation, both in the US and in Hungary.

Quality assurance:
● Accuracy/quality is first priority
● Double check on ambiguous terms (highly efficient usage of the Internet/dictionaries)
● I mainly take English to Hungarian projects, since my native-language is Hungarian, but there are subjects (for example medical, business or legal texts) where my wide range of terminology expertise is needed for the translation. In these projects I provide an all-inclusive translation service: I ask an English native-speaking colleague to review my English translations.

I believe in the theory which says: the more specialties you have, the more valuable and professional translator you are. As technology develops more and more professions get connected with each other, different fields combine and you need to be up-to-date with as many fields as you are comfortable with.
First of all you need to read a lot, you have to have different interests and not just scratching the surface, but digging into the specific field. You need to have good logic and what is very important you need to be a very good linguist. Not just understanding words, but using your logic, brain and linguistic skills, understanding the meaning of a sentence and then transplant the meaning accurately.

RATES:

Currencies: Euro (€) and USD (US$).

Please, note that my rates depend on the tasks (translation, back translation, proofreading, editing, adaptation, copy-writing, DTP etc.), subject and language style, deadline and volume of the project (or on the quality of the translated text in case of proofreading). For me quality assurance is never a question.

Don't forget that just as in any other industries also in translation the different quotes you receive for a particular project are most of the time directly proportional to quality, expertise and experience.
Translation rates:

0.10 Euro - 0.20 Euro/word

Proofreading/editing rates:

0.04 Euro - 0.10 Euro/word or 25-55 Euro/hr
