Bio
I started translating more than 30 years ago as a small schoolboy. My strong desire to have Czech texts in my foreign comic books led me to drawing, cutting and pasting translated speech balloons and gave me motivation to learn foreign languages.
In 1993, I started translating for a living in the Czech version of the American IT magazine BYTE and working with agencies and direct clients as well.

Education
  • High School of Electronics, in the field of electronics and telecommunications
  • Czech Technical University, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, where I studied electronics, computers and programming
  • I gained the academic title of "Ing.", which is the equivalent of Master of Science in Engineering (MSE)
English
  • Cambridge certificate of CEFR level C2 (i.e. the highest available)
  • Summer term of English and American Studies at Suffolk University, Boston, USA
  • Another stay in the USA, this time as an au-pair boy in a wonderful American family
  • Two stays at language schools in Great Britain with homestay accommodations
  • Backpack travels around the world, e.g. working on a farm in Ireland
  • 8th place in the world in Smart As language games on PSN (from about 25,000 people)
