 ACADEMIC EXPERIENCE

Jan Kolbaba is a professional full-time freelance translator with vast experience in handling technical translations. His main areas of focus are in automotive, software & hardware, engineering, trucks, agricultural and construction machinery but he is also able to handle many other areas as well.

His technical education and in-depth knowledge of technical terminology, combined with several years of expertise and active collaboration with many engineering technicians, as well as direct clients and agencies have taught him that quality, a deep understanding of front-end technologies, accuracy, reliability and meeting deadlines are the most important factors for manufacturers, agencies and the ultimate market. By using the professional equipment (CAT and Quality Management Tools), developing and maintaining vast terminology databases and translation memories, he ultimately guarantees unmitigated consistency of the terminology even while handling the largest technical translation projects.

He doesn't provide translations for the fields of finance, banking, law or economics.

As well as being an enthusiastic translator he's also a passionate motorcyclist who never refuses a glass of good, cold beer or a medium steak.
