I have managed to successfully establish myself as a journalist and writer in two language environments – my native Czech, as well as English. I have a very good command of both languages and enjoy putting my language skills to test in various translation and transcreation projects.
Thanks to my experience with audiovisual media and voice-over projects, I have the ability to translate and transcreate texts that are intended to be listened to. I know how to make a text read and sound natural and pleasant in order not to overwhelm the listener but to catch his or her attention and deliver the message efficiently.
Since I have lived in both language environments for extensive periods of times, I understand the subtleties of cultural differences and connotations that frequently make the difference between delivering and not delivering the message.
I always strive for a creative approach while honouring the meaning of the original text.
