Dobrý den. Jsem jazykovědec už 6 let. Studoval jsem čínštinu v Kalifornii a pracoval jsem na Havaji 4 roky jako lingvista. Teď umím česky lépe než čínsky, a čeština je moje odborem. Prostě mě zajímá čeština. Mluvím česky na úrovni B1, ale umím číst český na úrovni B2 až C1 díky tomu, že velmi dobře rozumím gramatice. Jsem dobrý výzkumník a zaručuju, že překlady ode mě budou velmi přesné. Nabízím taky korektury anglických textů a pracuju pro Alza.cz jako čtenař korektury.
Hello. I have been a linguist for 6 years. I studied Chinese in California and worked as a linguist for 4 years on Hawaii. Now I know Czech better than Chinese and the Czech language is my specialty. Czech simply interests me. I speak Czech on a B1 level, but I can read at a B2 to C1 level thanks to my great understanding of grammar. I am a good researcher and I guarantee that my translations will be very accurate. I also offer proofreading of English texts and I work at Alza.cz as a proofreader.
I am looking forward to your cooperation.
