Meet our new linguist: Kata Vörös
Albion Languages welcomes Kata Vörös to our Budapest team. In this post, we ask about her background, her love for languages, and what she is looking forward to as a linguist at Albion Languages.
Tell us a bit about yourself!
I have always loved studying foreign languages, but in secondary school, I wasn’t entirely set on a career in it. I graduated with a BA in English Studies and later received an MA in Language Teaching. However, it wasn’t long before I decided to move in another direction. I ultimately decided to pursue a career in translation and it was the best decision I could have made.
What languages do you speak, and why do you enjoy learning languages?
I speak English and Spanish, and am more or less fluent in German. I’ve also started learning Russian, which is quite a challenge, but I really enjoy it.
What inspired you to pursue a career in the translation industry?
For as long as I can remember, I have dreamt of working with foreign languages. As I have also always loved to write, choosing a career in translation just made perfect sense. I find it to be a very exciting field that offers new challenges and a variety of interesting tasks every day.
What do you hope to gain from working at Albion Languages?
As I am new to this industry, I feel lucky to be able to work closely with expert linguists who openly share their experiences and gladly offer useful advice. I immediately had the impression that this is a very professional company where I can really learn about every step of the translation process.
In your opinion, what skills are needed to be a good linguist?
Precision, dedication, and ability to keep to deadlines.
Now for some fun questions! Can you tell us a surprising, random fact about you?
I’ve been a big fan of motor sports since I was 10 years old, and actually used to work part-time as a Formula One journalist during my university studies.
What do you like doing outside of work?
I love reading books, travelling as much as possible, and staying active by playing various sports.
