Jakub Hnidec

Proud to translate

I approach each task with passion and attention to detail and always try to meet the needs of customers, looking for solutions that will satisfy them.
I made my professional debut in 2009 and established cooperation with APM PRO for whom I translated correspondence and technical documents such as operating manuals, catalogue cards and certificates for road safety equipment. This provided me with an opportunity to get to know the technical terminology and to serve as a language consultant.
By establishing Jakub Hnidec Translations in September 2015 I was able to fully focus on my work as a translator. A step into the unknown, which turned out to be a bull's eye and led to a rapid expansion of the customer base, most of which returns regularly with new orders.
Since 2016, the offer also includes software localization and translating marketing content.
