Professional Background in Multilateral Organisations

I started professional translation after a very enjoyable career in multilateral diplomacy where my linguistic abilities in both English and French were honed in the context of various international organisations. I have a track record in a range of subject matters with an economic or legal angle, such as human rights, humanitarian, migration and labour issues, and international development.

My strengths reflect this operational background: an ability to quickly grasp the big picture; to adapt to the individual requirements of any client and project; and to find the right tone of voice for your message through different cultural settings.

I also bring valuable first-hand insight into the internal workings of international and public-sector bodies (European Union, Council of Europe, the United Nations and its specialised agencies, in particular ILO, UNHCR, etc.). Having once been a government representative in multilateral negotiations over many years, I am intimately familiar with the tricks and trade of drafting documents in both the EU and the UN. As a result, I am uniquely positioned to handle the most challenging of texts in my fields of expertise. From a misleading adjective to a misplaced comma, I know what to avoid and, even more importantly, what to apply for consistently high-quality translations.

Qualified Economist

As a business, financial and marketing translator, I build on my academic training as an economist holding a BSc in Economics and an MSc in International Relations and Economics. This enables me to meet the specialist translation needs of my end clients, including multinationals and major investment funds. References are available at request.

Creative Translation

Transcreation is a more recent but fast evolving interest combining my affinity to marketing communication and my flair for creative writing. I have the pleasure of working with market leaders in the field and am constantly on the lookout for new opportunities to stretch my rapidly developing copywriting muscles.

A published translator in Hungarian, I have one novel and a few short stories from French into Hungarian under my belt. Other published translations include contributions to various volumes on international politics.
