Professional data
Most of my references are not public, so I can rather list here domains than company names:
- healthcare (intralogistics of medications, imaging equipment, preanalytical traceability of biological laboratory samples);
- functional cosmetics;
- professional events;
- business communication;
- HR;
- hotel industry;
- film industry;
- literature;
- religion;
- computer games;
- food industry and other industries.

Some public references: Europa (work title, 2009, a French documentary film in which I translated a Hungarian interview in French), GPI Spa (within the framework of another business cooperation, 2016-2019, English-Hungarian and Hungarian-English translation and interpretation), Pomurski Sejem d.o.o. (within the framework of another business cooperation, English-Hungarian translation, 2020).

I am a qualified English-Hungarian specialized translator and I also hold two diplomas obtained in French higher education (one in genetic research and one in marketing and commercial practices).

The "mother tongue level language skills" marked on my datasheet concern Hungarian language. I am a rather good speaker and writer in both English and French, but it would be pretentious to say that I know either of these langages at a mother tongue level.
