Working with Anna allowed us to discover a new dimension in our cooperation with English-speaking countries. For over 20 years, our NGO has been focusing on improving the Czech care system for people living with a mental illness. We have been able to gradually transform the image of people living with a mental illness in society and care mainly due to the transfer of good practice and know-how from abroad. We would not have succeeded without an excellent interpreter. Every little nuance interpreted or translated in a respectful and sensitive way is a step towards the destigmatization of people with mental illnesses. We have been working with Anna for 4 years. Apart from her sense for language, we appreciate Anna’s reliability and ideas about how to set up our international meetings.

I have worked with Anna on challenging debates and shows interpreted live on Czech Radio as well as on translations of interviews with renowned international film stars. I have always been absolutely satisfied!

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!
