Service Description

I am a German expatriate who has been residing in Spain for almost a decade. Prior to that I was living for eight years in the United States. Originally coming from an engineering background I later moved on to translating and teaching languages.

Here are some examples of my previous translation work:
- Guidebooks, press releases, flyers, and websites for the tourism industry
- Articles and websites on music, both classical and contemporary
- E-books, both fiction and non-fiction
- Technical documents and specifications
- Financial documents and articles
- Business notes and communications.

When working on translations my main focus is on client satisfaction. To meet the clients needs and to deliver a quality product on time is what my work is all about.
