Continuous education and training is an essential part of any professional translator or interpreter’s work. As a translator and coordinator of translation projects I regularly participate in various terminological seminars and workshops organised by professional organisations, especially the Chamber of Court Appointed Interpreters and Translators of the Czech Republic, the Union of Translators and Interpreters of the Czech Republic and Juridikum.
