Service Description

The two areas in which I provide my services are translation and resume/CV-writing. With my educational and professional background, I am uniquely suited for these types of assignments. As it happens, I amassed extensive experience before joining Elance.

TRANSLATION: EN>DE, DE>EN, FR>EN
Given that I'm a bilingual native speaker of English and German, carrying out translation assignments in both these languages will be a carefully crafted and well-executed endeavour (regardless of which of these two is the source/target language). It certainly makes a big difference in the quality of the translation if you're referring your project to a truly bilingual native speaker, rather than someone with only good knowledge in one of the languages concerned.

Further, given my fluency in French, I'm also quite happy to translate texts from French into English. My professional experience in an international legal environment has frequently seen me handle translation projects for international organizations. It also helps that I've actually lived in Germany and the United Kingdom for many years - and successfully studied in both countries. Whilst I'm happy to translate on any subject, my specialties include law, politics, literature and business.

This is the very background I've brought to bear on behalf of my previous clients. It would be a delight to do the same for you!

Given my passion for language and playing around with words, I've also been able to help...
