Company Management

Mgr. Katarína Absolonová

Customer Satisfaction Manager and Co-owner

Katka is in charge of the company’s entire production: translation, interpreting, subtitling and other complementary linguistic services for clients. ASAP-translation’s project managers report to her and, when necessary, she also does some of their work. However, her main job description is ensuring customers are satisfied with our services. She is the person on the other end of ASAP-translation's customer HOTLINE.

A university graduate with degree in English and psychology, and experience in translation and marketing, she knows exactly how to manage people and projects. Her work was honoured in 2006 when she was awarded Outstanding Businesswoman and her goodwill is reflected in her term as Ambassador of Slovak Businesswomen in 2010–13.
