As a certified German translator I am constantly looking for new business relationships and translations projects, as well as projects that include English/German correspondence, localization, proof reading, and copy writing. I obtained a Master's degree in translation studies as well as a Bachelor's degree in International Business, Economy and Marketing. Additionally, I am a certified translator for English by the state of Germany. Over the last 7 years I was able to gain experience in translating, proofreading and writing English and German text. My work includes translation and proofreading tasks of the following areas: LEGAL: legal documents, contracts, waivers, imprints and non-disclosure agreements IT: website content and software applications, as well as technical user manuals, product write-ups buyer's guides and mobile Apps MARKETING: business communication, presentations and marketing/ PR materials EDUCATIONAL: language learning materials for German including in depth explanation of grammar rules, creation of flashcards and course materials TECHNICAL: technical text, product manuals and description Copy Writing experience: E-Books, product information with SEO focus, Travel guides, Articles and Blogs I'm aware of the differences between creative translation and exact translation and will adapt my style to your respective needs. Furthermore, I work with SDL Trados to ensure the highest possible quality of my translations, including the layout and formatting of the source documents. My work is very detail-oriented, yet fast-paces because Client satisfaction is of the utmost importance to me.
My previous line of work led to the start of a VA business. My goal is to work with what I like and keep up the trend of various tasks. The rate described is my lowest rate, which I usuallay apply because I sometimes like to do assignments to keep my skills at a recent level, then that rate apply. On the other hand could other assigments require a higher rate. My VA role is one of the multi skilled, or multifaceted as I use for marketing, since I've learned a lot of different skills during the positions I held. I'm very service minded, as I started out as a cashier and office girl and had the privilege to work with people with genuine feeling for service. I find it likable and I also think it makes sense to keep a service minded attitude towards customers. If you see someone without a smile - give them one of yours kind of recaps what service is about. Besides the service offered in the line of work, that is. Later on I've for several years each, held positions as sales secretary, school secretary, administrative consultant, application specialist and web/system developer. In addition to work I've been studying sociology, psychology and computer science at academic level. Still today I feel at home in almost any constellation of work, I like to do repetitive tasks from time to time, and challenging tasks from time to time. Work satisfaction is important to me and it means delivering good results, to be of benefit to the receiver. For myself the help and learn part goes a long way. One other thing to mention is that I learned to type at early age. That skill has been both useful and fun during the years. Besides skills in service and typing I'm interested in languages, both human and computer. Where human language is concerned I write with good imagination, do my research and have a very good vocabulary. Where computers are concerned I like to do life easier for end users and I also focus on usability. Where both languages are involved I also like to enhance the experience for the reader/user. Oh, I nearly forgot (if yo're still reading this short essay that is), I also do some graphic designs from time to time. Web design, Logo designs, Business Cards, Newsletter, formatting in Word, layouts in PowerPoint and so on! We need beautiful things! Cheers!

I have been translating from German and English into my native Czech since 1998, specializing in marketing, IT and technical documents. Wondering why I’m not your average translator? For one, my clients appreciate my unfailing attention to detail. They rely on my keen intuition. They also benefit from my interest in modern technology and new developments in the industry. I’m all about straightforward communication and deliver top-notch services with an excellent price/performance ratio. I use the latest software (SDL Trados 2014, Across, MemoQ) to ensure quality and streamlining, but I also make full use of far more important tools: my head and my heart. ► Marketing & PR Send me your marketing copy and I will turn it into readable, compelling Czech: brochures, flyers, catalogues, press releases, social media content, or entire websites. Your readers won’t have to contend with cringe-worthy phrasing, questionable terminology or embarrassing errors. ► IT, telecommunications & websites Every translator has a sweet spot, and this is mine. More than fifteen years of translating and keeping up to date with the latest trends means that this sector is right up my alley. I’m also perfectly comfortable with programmers’ jargon and terms like “big data”, “SEO” and “UX” don’t exactly set my knees to knocking. ► Technical I can give you a clear and accurate translation of manuals, technical specifications or other technical documents. I have a particular soft spot for mechanical and electrical engineering, automation, automotive, and commercial kitchen equipment. ► Software & SAP localization I have plenty of experience in IT and a basic knowledge of programming and software development, so I can translate applications, both small and large, for a result that is technically accurate and user-friendly. I respect the OS-specific terminology (Windows or OS X) as well as your style guide. I’m also happy to translate SAP applications directly in SE63. SAPterm? Absolutely!
