I have been translating for over 25 years for a variety of clients.

Welcome to PM Translations – the Czech – English Translation Service!

Whatever your needs in the field of translation between Czech and English or from Slovak to English, I am here to help. As an honorary Mancunian for almost 30 years, I am not only fluent in both languages, but also in both ways of life.

Despite specialising in theatre and art translation in the past, I am just as happy to translate your school certificate or job contract. I can offer a professional and bespoke translation service; your needs are my priority so get in touch!

About Me

Pavla Mataskova MA MCIL

Pavla Mataskova MA MCIL

Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists and an Affiliate Member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting

Born and bred in Prague, I graduated from the Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague and also from the Masters Programme at the School of English at the University of Leeds. In Prague I worked at The Theatre Na zábradlí and for the Theatre Institute and also as a freelance translator and teacher of English.

I first moved to Manchester in early 1990s and later also lived in London and Leeds. For the last 15 years I have been working in the educational sector. I am the head of the Czech School & Community Manchester and a vice-chair of the Association of Czech and Slovak Schools in the UK. In my rare free time I love exploring the great outdoors (I am a volunteer for the Duke of Edinburgh Award), skiing, travelling and reading.

I have been translating for almost 25 years and have worked as a translator for many Prague theatres, The Theatre Institute, the Prague office of the EU programme Culture or the Academy of Performing Arts and Charles University. My translation of the Jim Cartwright’s play The Rise and Fall of Little Voice was produced by Studio Dva and performed at the Svandovo divadlo in Prague and is represented by the DILIA Agency.
