Managing Director – a sociologist who quenched her journalistic call to answer the one that whispered “Translate…!” They have been singing along for two decades now. Monika has translated over 30 books for the most renowned publishing houses in the country. A born-to-be linguist and addicted bed-reader who suffers from abibliophobia and, lately, anatidaephobia – you know, a loony who is afraid of having nothing more to read while being observed by… ducks?!
Monika puts herself to sleep by reading translation treaties and loves to study dictionaries. A daughter of mountain guides, she carries the sweet genetical burden of a wanderer. She also loves to dive into the depths and float high while practicing tai-chi. An amateur of socio-psychology.
Journalist, editor, copywriter – with a love for the written word bordering on addiction, when there are no books or magazines within reach, she reads lists of ingredients on packaging. As a one-time journalist for the information media, she favours a style that avoids both overly simple connotations and sublime metaphors. In turn, as an editor of different types of writing – from news, journalistic reports and features, to educational and popular science books – she appreciates how her own linguistic resources have been enriched by the thousands of books she has read. She values language culture, observes processes of word formation with interest, and does her best to stem the tide of calques from English. She uses up any spare energy by dancing wildly at home to anything that has rhythm.
Assistant Project Manager – Fraktal’s main job is to hang around, do nothing and look gorgeous. He doesn’t drink coffee, knows no languages and loiters around the Project Manager’s desk with his magnificent feline body when the disturbing human is not around. He doesn’t answer emails, and believe us, we’ve tried teaching him!
Tech Assistant – if anything breaks, Tomasz fixes it! A programmer, analyst, hardware and software expert, he drinks oceans of coffee (luckily not ours), as, in most cases, his services are conducted online.
Typesetting – The DTP graphic, who had been working for Poznań media since 1991. He used to work as a journalist and editor for “Dziennik Poznański”, “Gazeta Poznańska” and “Express Poznański” (as a chief editor deputy). He was a head of Prasa Poznańska publishing house that published local journals and daily press (including the two latter titles). He is the designer of many press and magazine layouts.
