I am a native German speaker with near-native English proficiency and excellent written and verbal skills in both languages. I focus on high-quality translations, on proofreading and on Voice-Over recordings (English and German) in studio quality for audio books, sales & 'How-To' videos, etc. Here you can view and listen to a German video sample: http://bit.ly/1lB3mUG. I am well experienced in timing audios and syncing them to original videos as well. Also, if you need a clear, warm sounding and neutral English voice without American or...

Service Description

I also have been doing English to German translations and proofreading for the last 15 years. My oDesk test scores are: top 10% of 2300 tests taken in the English to German Translations Skills Test; top 20% of 310 000 tests taken in the English Spelling Test and above average in the U.S. English Basic Skills Test.

I have longstanding experience in translating, editing and proofreading of non-technical and technical documents from English to German and vice versa. I dig deep to get idioms and phrases translated/interpreted just right - if you hire me you will get the best of both worlds. For 15 years I was co-heading the English-German translations desk for the publishing companies Aurora Productions, CH and Activated Desk, UK, all the while working in an English speaking micro-environment. In this position my focus was on translations from the ground up, proofreading and quality control. The majority of the material has been on the topics of personal development, professional coaching & training and on religion & spirituality. To further underscore my proficiency and language awareness: I hold a degree as a TEFL-Teacher (teaching English as a foreign language); I am a certified Life-Coach and coach clients in both languages; I regularly update websites in both languages, German and English.  

Besides written translations and voice over (e.g. for Conrad Electronic Intern.), I have recently been editing audio files for German-English language teaching DVDs, using Audacity...
