Service Description

I will take care of all your translation needs between German-English-French-Spanish, offering high-quality translation services from German, French and Spanish into English and from English, French and Spanish into German. I am on contract with Public Works Canada for translations from Spanish and German into English; the Public Works Canada Translation Bureau serves as the conduit for the translation needs of all the Canadian government departments.

I provide editing and translation services in English for MIREMS, a media monitoring company working with international freelancers whose first language is not English, and have been promoted to Editor-in-Chief, which entails a final review of all products before they are sent to the clients. I also provide editing and translation services in German and English for Cambridge Editing, a Swiss editing and translation company.

In addition, I provide translations for Cultural Interpretation Services for Our Communities (CISOC), a registered charitable organization that was founded in 1993 with the aim of providing the highest standards of interpretation and translation services for newcomers to Canada and agencies working with newcomers.

I am a native speaker of both English and German, having grown up in Germany, done my undergraduate and graduate education in Canada, and commuted between Germany, Latin America and Canada for a 14-year professional career, during which I was based in Canada.
