Service Description

My services include copy and line editing, proofreading, translating from German to American or British English, and more. I'm proficient in MS Word and Excel and can be available on Skype.

An author whose book I translated wrote to me, "My very cordial thanks for this excellent and thorough work... You have always grasped the sense of the German text, although my language is not always easy to understand, and you managed to transfer the content exactly into English. This is a really commendable achievement."
