I am a sworn/certified/court registered full-time translator (University of Applied Sciences in Cologne). I have been working as a freelance translator for almost 2 decades. As a native speaker of the German language I have my specialization in software localization as well as in the technical, business, legal and general areas.

My first inhouse job was as a technical translator with a German company for plants and systems for the food and beverage industry.

Rapid changes in the IT
and internet sector have led to a greater focus on this area and to doing more
in it.

Translation from: ENG > DEU
I work with Wordfast 5, MS Office 2016, Trados Studio 2019.

Main areas of expertise:
software, some hardware, computer security, software documentation, software
strings, and also training materials, maintenance, administration, FAQ, operating
and training manuals, safety instructions (for other technical material), user
manuals / guides, IFU.

Further, patient
interviews, MSDS, short contracts and the like, certificates, public documents,
memorandum and articles of association as well as texts of general contents.

I also offer editing work for Machine Translations in the technical field.
