Happy to translate anything technology-related: computer software, hardware, manuals, training material, marketing literature, you name it.
Experience in web- and database localization, expert in HTML, can work with graphics and complicated file formats.
Business translation knowledge, including supported by an MBA in International Management degree, with focus on strategy and finance.
I can work with various CAT-tools, including Trados, MemoQ, Wordfast, and able to generate PDF files, too.
I am a published author both in Hungary and in Japan.

My resume and more information is available by clicking "Display standardized information" above. I asked some of my clients:
"Why did you choose me from the pool of applicants (there were 14 bids for this Japanese-English job)?"
"I graded each submitted sample (yours had no errors), then scored CV's (giving points for engineering or medical device background), and then ranked the highest graded and highest scored according to price. You won.
Thank you for your prompt performance, hopefully we will work together again."

Direct client: Medical device manufacturer, France, regarding a large Japanese to English job

"How did you find me?"
"I found you through The reason I picked you was multi-faceted: the number of KudoZ points you had, your technical skills with computers/TRADOS, and also through the initial conversations I had with you - your communication style conveys that you will be easy to work with. This last one is fairly subjective - I just had a hunch.
Thanks again for your hard work. It was a pleasure working with you -- we'll definitely keep you in mind for any future Hungarian translation projects."
