Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $70

I am fluent in German and English and have been working as a professional translator and editor since 2009. I translate and localize from English into German / German into English with German being my mother tongue and English being my second language (I am fluent due to having lived in the US) and offer proofreading and editing in both languages.

I am very reliable and perfectionist (good for me, perfect for you), and deliver quality work on time and with a very fast turnaround time.
