We are more than happy to announce the winner of December 2019 edition of our Translator of the Month action!
Translators’ work is of vital importance in every translation company. This initiative is our way to way to say thank you! and recognize the efforts of the industry professionals.
We would like to introduce you to Anna Sałek, one of our most German and English into Polish translators!
When did you realize you wanted to pursue a translation career?
During my internship in the Polish Ministry of Justice I was asked to prepare a written translation into Polish for then pre-accession advisor. Surprisingly, the results were quite satisfactory and I realized that I’m genuinely enjoying this!
What do you start your work day with?
My typical day starts with checking e-mails, news of dailies and social media updates (the latter is an advantage of being a freelancer 🙂
If there is no hurry I try to run my errands before the rush begins. Everything depends on my commitments.
Do you have a fixed schedule for work, or do you usually finish your day when your work allows you?
I don’t have a fixed schedule (which at times has a negative influence on my personal life) but respecting deadlines is my top priority.
Do you have a life motto?
No pain no gain, no risk no fun 🙂
What do you enjoy most about working with SeproTec?
Interesting projects, well organized workflows and extremely helpful project managers.
What advice would you give to beginner translators?
Trust yourself, be patient and do not rely on Machine Translation because it makes your mind lazy.
Thank you for your time, Anna, and congratulations! It’s a great pleasure to work with you. And enjoy your Sepro hoodie 🙂
