I am a native German speaker, working as a professional freelance translator who provides first-class English to German and German to English translations with a focus on quality, guaranteed turn-around times and a high standard of customer service.
I am also an Associate Member of the Society of Translators and Interpreters of British Columbia (STIBC) - English to German.

For me, a professional translation means more than replacing words from one language with words of another -- it is a complex process that requires attention to detail, excellent knowledge of both languages and experience, all of that is part of my professional philosophy.
I pride myself on being reliable and professional at all times, delivering that extra bit of service to ensure that my translations are correct, and most importantly understood.

Moreover, I am also a qualified teacher for German, English, French and Russian as Second Languages.
