Hello. My name is Dorota Pawlak, a qualified English-Polish and German-Polish translator and localiser. My goal is to help businesses, organisations and individuals to communicate successfully with their partners and customers by overcoming the language barrier. And this is what I’ve been doing since 2009.
I specialise in localisation of websites, games and software, as well as in IT and photography texts and in the translation of technical documents in these fields.
Passionate about technology and languages, I’ve been always fascinated by the way these two fields merge, interweave and evolve as a result of their mutual influences. That’s why I provide localisation services and translate IT related content with the help of technology and at the service of technology, always keeping your benefits in mind.
I’ve worked with amazing clients ranging from: software developers, mobile app developers, game producers, non-for-profit organisations, authors, independent developers, website designers, photography equipment manufacturers, e-businesses, photography and IT trainers, technology solution providers, IT specialists and online shops.
To share my knowledge and experience I run a Website Localisation for Beginners course, for fellow translators who are seeking to specialise in this area. I also regularly contribute to my blog Beyond the Words, where both translators and customers can find hands-on tips and advice on localisation, translation and related technology. You can also find me at many translation events across Europe, both as an attendee and as a speaker. My next presentation will be at the BP17 Translation Conference in Budapest in May 2017.
Together with Ellen Singer I have founded All-round Translator Events where we help translators run their business more effectively offering workshops and one-day annual conferences. In 2016 I established Polish Localisation which helps businesses expand internationally by offering intercultural communication and localisation services.
