Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $22

Native German speaker who lives in southern Germany. Languages are my passion, and I love to translate, read, proofread and record voice overs.

I studied English and German at university and spent five years living in England where I taught German at a private school. At that time, I also gave some private lessons in English.

Later on I trained to be a state-certified foreign language correspondent: main areas were English, Spanish, translation and economics. I spent seven years working as a proofreader for a local German newspaper. So...

Service Description

I translate any text or book on any topic from English into German. Of course, I also translate from German into English, but I prefer translating from English into my mother tongue German. I have so far translated three books, homepages, CVs, leaflets and various other texts (technical and non-technical) into both German and English.

I proofread any German or English text (spelling, typos, punctuation, stylistic and grammatical mistakes). I spent seven years working as a proofreader for our local German newspaper. Whenever I read something, I always spot the mistakes immediately. and I take great care to correct them.

I also offer voice over in German and English. Since I lived a few years in England, I have a slight British accent. My voice is fairly deep and soft. But you will have to listen to it and hear for yourself, if it is suitable for your purpose.
