My translations are of top quality because...

  • I studied translating in Leipzig, Edinburgh and Moscow for five years.
  • I have been working as a freelancer since 1997
  • I only accept jobs in my fields of expertise and when feeling absolutely comfortable with them.
  • I use state-of-the-art translation memory and terminology software. This means that your client's terminology will stay consistent.
  • I can import your client's existing terminology and/or translations.
  • If I have queries regarding your client's terminology, I will contact you well before the deadline
  • I thoroughly check my translations for orthography, grammar, and style.
  • A second native German speaker proofreads all my translations – at no extra charge to you.

The same applies for my colleagues' translations:

  • Every translator only translates into his/her mother tongue.
  • Every translator only translates in his/her field of expertise.
  • The translator and/or proofreader holds a degree in translating.
  • Both the translator and/or proofreader checks his/her translation.
