About me
Quality with a personal touch

I will translate your content using the best software, tools and resources available and drawing upon my extensive knowledge of and experience with the German and English languages. I work with all my clients on a personalized, one-on-one basis: no intermediaries, no subcontractors.

A decade in Germany

Germany was my home for over ten years, and I still return regularly. This experience has given me a solid command of not only standard conversational German but technical jargon, regional variances and slang. I will not misinterpret or guess at the meaning of your German content, and I will produce a concise, correct and sophisticated American English text in a style appropriate to your target audience.

Do one thing, do it right

I focus on translation from German into English for two reasons: English is my native tongue and English is the language spoken in the country in which I reside. This specialization ensures that the English translation you receive will convey the nuance of a native speaker and tone of the contemporary, living language. This furthermore represents best practice in the field of translation and is indicative of my work ethic.

You have my full attention

I am a full-time translator working from a dedicated home office equipped with state-of-the-art hardware and software.
