I am a freelance translator specializing in the German-to-English language pair. I have extensive expertise with the translation of automotive, engineering and business documents. As such, my client portfolio includes such names as BMW, Mercedes and Volkswagen. I am currently engaged with clients and translation agencies located in India, China and the USA, and am established as an American Corporation (State of Washington) fully ready and authorized to do business.
My professional experience includes the Lear Corporation, a leading global supplier of automotive seating systems and electrical power management systems, where I worked as a German Language Consultant for over a year. During my tenure at Lear, I honed my abilities in the above-mentioned areas and have translated over 250,000 words per year in the automotive domain. I also benefitted from the opportunity to sharpen my language skills while I provided customized in-house German language and cultural training to resident engineers at Lear.
In my current capacity, I continue to work for Lear on a freelance basis along with other new clients in the medical, legal and financial areas. I used Computer-Aided-Tools (Trados Studio 2009) to ensure terminology consistent. I am available for 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Pacific Standard Time (PST) and my daily output is 1,000 to 2,500 words, depending on content and level of difficulty.
Please feel free to contact me for any further information. I look forward to hearing from you.
