Service Description

I was born and raised in Germany, and I hold a Master of Arts degree from a German university. I moved to the U.S. after graduating.

I have 10 years of professional translation experience in:

- business
- finance
- information technology
- international trade
- marketing
- entertainment media
- advertising
- public relations
- and education.

I believe it is of high importance that a quality professional translation be not only accurate and grammatically correct, but appropriate to the culture. As a native speaker of German with near-native speaker fluency in English and a complete immersion in the English language and U.S. culture, I can provide you with just that: A culturally sensitive German translation of the highest quality. I also bear in mind any cultural references that may need to be explained to the intended audience, such as colloquialisms, slang, and other expressions that do not translate literally. My overall goal is to produce a translation in which sentences and ideas flow with the same coherence as those in the source document so that the translation reads as though it originated in the target language.

For confidentiality reasons I do not post translated texts in my portfolio. However, I will be happy to provide samples of my work upon request.



I always strive for excellence in my work. I am very reliable, efficient, and in most cases I am available to start on your project immediately. You will be in direct contact with me...
