Have a look at some of my testimonials.

Translations English / German

The translation of a short business email or the translation of a very personal letter are both important to you. So are the contents of your website or your dissertation, your company brochures or your autobiography. For all of these translations you will need a competent and reliable translator to convey the message and style of your marketing materials or capture the “feel” of your personal document in the other language.

If you’d like to get an idea of the quality of my English-German translation work, please see my client comments under Testimonials as well as my English-German Project Examples.

Proofreading English / German

You have had your company website or other important business documents translated but how do you know for sure that the translation is free of errors and that the style of the translation matches your source documents?

You have written your dissertation in your second language but you are not sure whether you overlooked spelling mistakes, phrased it eloquently enough or kept a consistent style?

I can check your translation thoroughly for you. Better safe than sorry!

Translating for Businesses / Agencies

The difference between an average translation and an excellent one is little in terms of cost but massive in terms of benefit. A top quality translation will not only get the message across properly but really makes you look good.

Each translation, whether it’s a single email or the translation of a whole website, is an opportunity to impress customers or clients who speak a different language ... and that translates into increased sales.

Translating for Students / Private Individuals

Maybe you are a student who needs to deliver an eloquently phrased accurate assignment or dissertation in your second language? Or perhaps you are a pensioner who wants to keep in touch with extended family abroad that doesn’t speak your language? Or again, maybe you need to prepare a wedding speech in the language the relatives of your son’s bride are speaking?

Before tearing your hair out – just get in touch! I can give you a professional English and German translation or translation proofreading service for all your non-commercial needs at a price you can afford.

German Translation Services

TThe translation of a small text of only a few words in a business email or the translation of a book (e.g. a novel) of several hundred pages from English to German is a specialist professional activity. So is translating website content or translating a dissertation. In the translation of company brochures, computer games, business letters, resumes, applications or even a simple personal letter I use the same professional skills but adapt my approach to the type of document I am translating and the target audience for it.

German Native Speaker

TTo get the highest standard of translation a translator usually translates into their native language and I guess my surname gives mine away! However, I also undertake translations into English. In order to be absolutely sure that the finished German to English translation is as good as my translation into German would be I have all my English translations proofread by my qualified English partner. In fact, this “double act” can turn in a better result than a German-English translator since a native speaker is working on both sides of the job.
