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.

ABOUT ME

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.

SERVICES

Translation

I convert your written document from English to German. It involves also adapting the text to the culture and the target audience.

Editing/Revision

Checking of the German content, previously translated from English by another translator. I will focus on consistent terminology and make recommendations where needed.

Proofreading

Detailed revision of the German target text by checking on grammar, spelling, formatting and punctuation. I will give a second opinion and will help you to extend your text to an excellent one.

Localization

Your game, software, website or app content needs to be translated into German? Let me help you to adapt your content to your preferred target  audience.

Transcription

You need spoken words transformed into written content. 
Just send me your English or German interviews, podcasts, lectures, etc.

“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)
