Services

Together with my team I offer top quality translation and proofreading services from English, French, German and Dutch into Czech within the subject matter of business, law, finances and marketing. In addition to the first-class output, my services stand out because of my individualized customer approach, reliability, sophisticated process and uncompromising work ethics with core values of utmost confidentiality, integrity and safety of client information. 

I specialize in business, law, finance and marketing. If you need a translation of, for example, terms and conditions, a supply contract, an annual report or promotional materials for your new product, you have come to the right place. However, translations regarding the institutional structure and functioning of the EU, European law, economic competition, patents, copyright and trademarks truly showcase my professional competence. I translate texts with general subject matters as well, of course.

An independent translator proofreading is a standard part of each project, unless specified otherwise. To this end I cooperate with professional colleagues – experienced translators in the respective language pair who are native speakers of the Czech language. Effective teamwork under my expert management allows us to master even large-scale and time-consuming projects. I apply the same strict standards of confidentiality and work ethics to the performance of my colleagues as well.

Work Process and Professional Principles

The quality of my service, represented by a first-class target document flawless as to its grammar, terminology and stylistic propriety, stems from a sophisticated process and principles, which apply to every single project I take, without exception.

Whenever possible, I use the latest computer-aided translation (CAT) tools I possess and master. I can generate client-specific translation memories (TM) and terminological databases (termbase, TMB) with the help of this software, and manage them for future project applications. This process not only expedites the translation, but also assures the highest degree of terminological consistency in repetitive phrases, both identical and similar. CAT tools can significantly improve translator’s output, however, only if used with competence and to a reasonable extent. I strongly oppose machine translation (MT). It is – and always will be – merely an automated process which cannot match a creative, thoughtful translation from the pen of a professional translator.

I do not use machine translation on principle, nor do I provide post-editing of machine translated text.

Confidentiality, Integrity and Data Safety

The information my clients entrust me with is often very confidential. This is why, in addition to the aforementioned reasons, I never use any machine translation or on-line translation engines, on-line supplements to CAT tools, or any of the currently popular cloud-based technologies for client data processing or storage, because their application invariably means relinquishing control over the input source material.

Although it may be a popular and widespread notion about how a freelancer works, I never work in public places or use public internet networks, such as at airports or cafés, or anyplace else where the integrity of processed information could be compromised.

My professional PC as well as my smartphone are equipped with state-of-the-art, regularly updated antivirus software.

Equipment and Tools

I use the latest hardware and software equipment, which provides high degree of effectiveness and user comfort with the objective of uncompromising target quality. In addition to standard office equipment, I use the latest versions of electronic dictionaries, CAT tools, terminology management software, quality assurance software, optical character recognition software and text-generating speech recognition software. I am a certified user of the leading CAT tool SDL Trados Studio (both translation and project management modules).

Hardware – Capacity, effectiveness, reliability

Software – Effective use of the latest technologies
