About Roland S. RaczIn 1999, as a private entrepreneur, I started Business Team Translations and provided translation and interpreting services to businesses for almost five years. For six months during that period I was the corporate interpreter for the American construction giant, Washington International. We did a project for Carrier Corporation – the largest refrigerator manufacturer in the world – relocating an entire factory from Italy to Hungary; a job I was invited to do after I’d successfully completed another interpreting assignment that my six co-translators had found too hard to handle, dropped out and left me as the last man standing. I began to win more and more translation bids and tenders, the most remarkable of which was a quality assurance manual. I also translated several bestsellers and non-fiction books that were published in Hungary. Before long, we received a call from Canada, from a gambling company who urgently needed to translate a large quantity of legal materials. I was no expert at legal translation and I didn’t really know what to say to the company. Earlier, I’d translated everything; I did all the marketing, and I really enjoyed both. But this was a completely different situation. We had to find someone who could translate this multi-thousand-dollar legal project for us. We did and it became the beginning of a new era in which more and more translators and project managers started to serve our clients in several countries.
