I have only one bigger experience in translating, I was one of the Hungarian translators of I’m interested in sports, chess, stars and environment defense.

Alkalmazástechnikai szakember vagyok egy magyar szoftvervállalatnál illetve kezdő amatőrcsillagász. Több Zooniverse projektben is részt veszek, szerintem ez egy hatalmas lehetőség a tudomány és tudósok segítésére. Jelentősebb fordítói tapasztalatom eddig a magyarítása volt, itt egy voltam a többi fordító között. Érdekel a sport, a sakk, a csillagok és a környezetvédelem.
