Four languages in one project: complete documentation of a packaging machine: English user manual (20k words) and French error code list (10k words) with German reference. My task: translate both with unified Hungarian terminology. Although I did not want to take more assignments for this year, I simply could not miss this challenge.
2020 in numbers: 3 active language pairs with the following distribution: 50%DE-HU, 30%EN-HU, 20% FR-HU, 300 timely delivered projects from 10 EUR to 2000 EUR, 25 returning clients, 8 new clients via Proz.com. After 15 years I still feel privileged to work as freelance translator and do what I really enjoy and what I am really good at.
Gigantic SDL package, article list of an electronic webshop. Translation went wrong, the previous translator did a terrible job, he/she might even used MT without permission. While proofing the text I try to make it consistent and create a nice termbase for the client.
Challenge! Multi-step complex project: alignment + proofing of previous translations (30 Word documents, 80k words), glossary building, and finally translation of 50k new words based on the previously proofed segments and glossary. I do love to see the quality & consistency of the documents rising.
