Pavla Jandová


We have been cooperating with Pavla Jandová for several years, and we have been very satisfied with her services. What we appreciate most besides her high quality translations from and to English and German is that she can work fast, is flexible, reliable and able to communicate promptly.

Adéla Přikrylová, Lingviéra

Pavla Jandová was very cooperative, willing to learn, thorough and deadline-conscious. She proved to be open to new tasks, hard-working and reliable. The quality of her output was comparable to that of in-house translators at the DGT.

Anna Žilková


The idea of the perfect interpreter or translator is the following: you don’t have to check their work and you have confidence in their professional skills; people reading their translations or listening to their interpreting commend their work and say that they are really good. Add agreeable manners and individual approach and you can be sure that this is exactly what Jinými slovy are about. Our “Bliss without Risk” organization has worked with Barbora Tite, Anna Žilková and Jakub Jurenka and thanks to them we know what professional and quality interpreting looks like. Thank you on behalf of the whole “Bliss without Risk” team.
Barbora Pšenicová, project manager, Bliss without Risk

Quality, professionalism, speed, readiness and reliability are the main reasons why we work with Anna Žilková. She is able to cope with difficult, highly technical texts, which are an integral part of our job. We look forward to continuing our cooperation!
Monika Horáková, Mettler-Toledo CZ & SK

Anna Žilková is a 100% reliable interpreter who is really nice to work with. Her simultaneous interpreting of live radio broadcasts is always very elegant, sensitive and informationally accurate. It happened to us several times that our international guests asked us for her contact information so that they could call her whenever they are back in the Czech Republic.

Barbora Tite


Ms Barbora Tite provided interpreting services for the Artlingua translation agency at the 51st and 52nd editions of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. We are looking forward to continuing our cooperation. Interpreting at the festival is very specific and highly demanding both form- and content-wise. The interpreter must be able to cover a wide range of topics, their performance may be broadcast live and they work late into the night. Ms Tite handled all this with an excellent, professional and calm approach.

Lada Weissová, Artlingua (KVIFF)

We have been working with Barbora since 2014. She provides consecutive interpretation between Czech and English at meetings with high-ranking Czech civil servants and members of Parliament. She is a true professional who comes perfectly prepared for every meeting and delivers the highest quality interpreting. I would recommend her to anybody without the slightest hesitation.

Monika Matyáštíková, Head of Public Affairs, Grayling CZ

The Mayor’s Office has been cooperating with Barbora Tite for several years. Her professionalism and perfect linguistic knowledge always guarantee an excellent outcome, irrespective of the type of job at hand. Her effort to accommodate all of her clients’ needs and outstanding public presentation skills complement very well the high level of her translation and interpreting services.

Sebastian Aguas


The Football Association of Czech Republic cooperated with Sebastian Aguas during the UEFA European Championship qualifying round on Septemper 2nd and 3rd 2015 when the Czech Republic played against Kazakhstan. Sebastian Aguas worked perfectly as a consecutive interpreter for us both at official press conferences before and after the match and during the festive lunch attended by representatives from both football associations, the President of the Pilsen Region and the Kazakh Ambassador. The Football Association of Czech Republic was very pleased with all services provided by Sebastian Aguas and with his very professional attitude. In case of further interpreting demand, the Football Association will further cooperate with him

Martin Gregor, The Football Association of Czech Republic

In 2015, we installed a new machine manufactured in China. Due to the fact that the technicians from China spoke only Chinese, Mr. Aguas provided for the interpreting and took care after the technicians when their working day ended. The machine was installed successfully and we were pleased with Mr. Aguas´ interpreting and really recommend him.

Miroslav Koumar, Miro

In September 2014, Mr. Aguas cooperated with our company as an interpreter for Chinese technicians during the installation and implementation of a new technology for corrugated cardboard production; a cutting machine and flexography production line. His service was of high professional quality and we were very pleased with it. Based on our experience we recommend Mr. Aguas.
