ABOUT ME

Personal

statement
 

I'm a precise, enthusiastic and hard-working woman. I started studying English at the age of 8 in primary school, and although I have received my Proficient level language certificate in 2006 - after graduating from high school -, I still believe I am not yet finished studying it – as I want to have the knowledge of a native speaker.

Since 2006 I have been working with the English language quite a lot – I was translating part-time for several companies in Hungary and for my friends and relatives as well -, but it took me some time to realise what my real passion is: and it is translation.

 

I moved to the United Kingdom after my husband, who successfully got a job here in July, 2011.

 

Since the beginning of 2012, I am a full-time English-Hungarian Interpreter and Translator in Nottingham - mostly between doctors and patients. Later, in April, 2014, I also started working as a freelancer for 3 other companies in the same position in the same city, but I still would like to work more with the language, as I want to develop even further.

 

I love translating and thrive on making customers happy.

 

My hobbies and interests include: drawing, painting, fishing, puzzles, crosswords, reading, surfing on the internet, translating and writing.

Values
  • professionalism

  • a keen eye for details

  • excellent command of my native language

  • great time management skills that enable me to work to tight deadlines – I have never missed a deadline and I am very proud of this

  • flexible working hours, including weekends and Bank Holidays
