Overview

A German native speaker with an MA in English & German, three years of professional experience as a translator, proof-reader & copy-editor and huge enthusiasm for languages. Based in Essen, Germany.

At the age of 16, I decided to take my interest in languages and literature further by attending university lectures in English on top of going to school. After graduating in 2010, I officially enrolled in university to pursue a BA and then MA in English and German literature and lingustics (including translation), which I graduated from with...

Service Description

I offer German to English and English to German translations, as well as proofreading, editing, and content writing. I have basic SEO skills.

Topics I have dealt with in my work to date include academic writing, (mobile/computer) software and apps, art, literature, history, music, popular culture, psychology, medicine, e-commerce, food and drink, love and relationship advice, everything internet-related and more.

I personally am especially keen on philosophy, literature, history, music, anything related to mobile software/apps and internet, but am always willing and ambitious to read closer into any topic.

My academical background crucially influences the way I work. Thanks to my linguistic studies, I am well-versed (and interested) in grammar, punctuation, semantics, syntax and pragmatics, whereas my literary studies have enabled me with a sense for the beauty of language and a profound understanding that a text is more than just the sum of its words. I hope and try to combine these skills in my translations and texts, finding a good balance between linguistic exactness and stylistic aesthetics. On top of that, despite my academic experiences, as a German native speaker I have never lost the natural and intuistic relationship with the language and the ear and eye for what sounds and reads natural.

Having worked as a proof-reader, translator and copy-editor, I am used...
