Do you need a proficient interpreter for your business negotiations, events or meetings in Vienna, Prague, Brno, Bratislava, or elsewhere? Are you looking for a professional who has mastered and can use several languages at once? For a specialist with insights into the transportation industry, information technology, and other technical subjects? Or for an experienced and diligent translator?

I offer professional interpreting and translation services in English, German, Polish, Slovak, and Czech, as well as expert support for international business collaboration in Central Europe:

  • Interpreting at technical and business meetings, video calls, training sessions, events, etc.
  • Translation of technical documents and technical texts, books (popular and technical), business communication and correspondence; also translations into multiple languages
  • Language support for international collaboration between companies operating in the Central European region
  • Researching new partners for doing business, research and development; support as an external expert for international projects

I specialize primarily in information and communication technology (ICT), the rail transportation industry, public transport, and logistics. I can deal with and understand other industries and technical areas as well. I am a native speaker of Czech and Slovak languages, with German, English, and Polish on a C1 level of language proficiency.

I have a university degree in the Technology of Rail Transportation from the University of Pardubice, as well as in Mathematical Informatics from Masaryk University in Brno, and 25 years of experience as a translator and expert in the ICT and transportation industry.

You can fully trust my expertise as a translator and interpreter since I have translated more than 120 books (including highly specialized technical ones), as well as hundreds of technical documents, regulations, presentations, manuals, and websites.

Firsthand recommendation

David was definitely one of the brightest person I have ever met since he was my classmate at grammar school. A typical problem-solver, ready to grasp the problem and find a solution quickly, no matter whether it is computer science or logistics. Excellent in math, informatics, transport-related branches (mainly railways), and many other areas.
