We all know that translation conferences are great events for learning, sharing information, meeting new colleagues and partners and also for having fun. If you have been busy with projects in the first few months of this year and haven’t had the chance to plan ahead, this is a good opportunity to boost up your calendar with conferences and other language industry events you wish to attend in 2019.
We are pleased to announce that recently we had some great new colleagues joining us! Please read their own introductions to learn where they come from and what they do at Language Experts Group.
Boglárka Tímea Tési - Head of Business Development
Attention. Honesty. Openness. - Values that are particularly important to me and I can rely on as a professional.
My task is to ensure that we meet requirements above the expectations. That is the reason why having a deep understanding of our partners, their duties, specific needs is the most important thing to me, in order to provide our own processes and optimal solutions in a way which suits them. All this is joy. Because the knowledge, attitude, and experience that characterize the company make me proud. And because it is always exciting to map a new partner, a company, an area. For that, in my opinion, a few things are essential: Attention. Honesty. Openness.
Zsuzsanna Juhászné Hahn - Vendor Manager
I graduated from Pázmány Péter Catholic University with a degree in Bohemian and German studies. Afterwards I spent a few years living in Prague. I started working for the LEG team in 2009 as a project manager, where I’ve been able to put my love of languages to good use. I had worked for translation agencies before, but once I got into the office itself I also learned a great deal about translation software and how to run professional translation projects. I also got to test my skills as a manager of special projects. Then I took a four-year break focusing on motherhood and my two wonderful children. I rejoined the team in 2015 and was astounded at the upgrades that were so huge I had to relearn the business. But my biggest personal change was my own upgrade from project manager to Vendor Manager, which I consider a key position. I have been doing whatever it takes to sustain our great relationship with our freelance translators and editors, while carefully expanding the range of people working for us to include experts in new specialized fields and new language combinations while sustaining our exacting professional standards. I spend most of my free time with my family but when I have the chance I focus on my not-so-secret passion – literary translation. I translate Czech prose, preferably the work of contemporary authors, into Hungarian.
Ádám Szinger - Junior Project Manager
I got my first taste of the translation world as a German major at Károli Gáspár Calvinist University and decided to focus my professional life around it. My next move was to take all the undergraduate and graduate professional and literary translation courses offered by the university. Then, thanks to LEG’s internship program, the road from school led straight to the LEG office where the workplace attitude, collegiality, and environment instantly made me feel that I’d made the right career choice. This job was exactly what I had hoped it would be – a place where I could get my career off the ground in a nurturing environment! As a junior project manager I learned how to work with customers and organize the workload and how to manage translation software. Thanks to these new skills I love the day-to-day aspects of the job and can handle the workload in a truly professional manner. I love to read – primarily studies in philosophy and the humanities – and listen to music in my free time.
Orsolya Péter - Assistant
My job keeps me in the back office, but my enthusiasm is definitely front office class. I thrive on positive thinking and high energy. To me a positive workplace atmosphere is vital and a few months on the job have shown me that working for LEG was an excellent choice. My education is in social policy and hairdressing – two vastly different fields that reflect my love of learning new and different things, and facing new challenges. I’m currently studying to be a fashion designer and I’m able to use my creativity and spirit of adventure in my working environment. I do my work, primarily administrative tasks, precisely, quickly, and inventively.
