TRANSLATIONS FROM ENGLISH INTO GERMAN
You are looking for a professional to translate and/or edit your documents? Great, you have found the right contact person.
I am a Berlin based translator and I provide accurate solutions in translations, localization, proofreading or editing for companies and individuals while I strive for an effective, creative and culturally adopted communication for my customers.
Our world is getting more and more global and communication is more important than ever. I would like to help you to carry your message to your desired target audience.
I am a native German and I have completed bachelor degree studies in Technical Translation at the Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences in Germany. I also studied for one year at the Tampere University in Finland, gaining more knowledge in languages and culture as well as in journalism and media.
Before starting my degree, I was trained as a foreign language correspondent. After completing my training, during my studies and after gaining my degree in Translation I have worked in several companies to acquire a wide range of practical knowledge in languages and business in the fields of global shipping, university administration, graphic design and public relations.
In 2016 I have founded my translation service through which I provide translation, proofreading, editing, localization and transcription mostly in the fields of technology and economics but also in marketing and video games.
I offer high-quality services in English and German for translation agencies, companies and individuals. I always had a huge passion for languages and I am still eager to learn and experience new ones.
If you wish to have a detailed CV of my education and work experience, feel free to contact me.
“To translate, one must have a style of his own, for otherwise the translation will have no rhythm or nuance, which come from the process of artistically thinking through and molding the sentences; they cannot be reconstituted by piecemeal imitation. The problem of translation is to retreat to a simpler tenor of one’s own style and creatively adjust this to one’s author.”
– Paul Goodman (1911 – 1972)

I always give 100% dedication to a strong and detailed work ethic. Translation is not just about putting the right words into the right place, it is more than that. For a quick translation I use ACROSS and OMEGA T cat tools to ensure the best quality control process in terms of translation and terminology.

I translate into my native language German. I strongly believe that I can only provide you the best possible translation by creating words with the language I grew up with and I know best.
