Pleased to meet you!

My name is Agnieszka Chęcińska and I am a professionally trained translator and interpreter for English and Polish. Languages have always been my passion so, naturally, education in language studies was quite an obvious choice. I strongly believe proper communication is key to success, therefore I do my best to help companies communicate in a clear and understandable manner. I work exclusively in the specialisations of IT, law and business, and my long-term experience and thorough knowledge reflect in the satisfaction of my clients.

I took my first steps in the translation and interpreting industry when I was still a University student. I worked for NGOs and local companies but today, after over 3,000,000 translated words, I cooperate with small and medium businesses both in Poland and abroad.

How can I help you?

Tools

CAT tools:

  • Trados Studio 2015
  • memoQ
  • Verifika (quality assurance tool)

I also use text editors and software localisation tools.

Terminology management allows me to use poper terms consistently throughout the whole text — it also applies to the terms used only at your company. With special translation tools the time of working on a project is shorter and the layout of your documents remains intact. I am also familiar with IT terminology which makes it easier for me to solve possible technical problems and work on the internal programmes of my clients fast and efficiently.
