Reach German-Speaking Customers!

My expert areas as native in-country translator are Software/IT, Marketing/Consumer/Media, Business/Forex/Finance and Gaming/Video Games in the language pair English to German.

I had mainly translated product descriptions, manuals, marketing texts and I localized software for mobile and desktop and I pay a lot of attention to correct number formatting (decimal marks and converting imperial to metric units, e.g. pound lb to kilogramme kg) and typography in german.

Software localization is one of my specialist areas and therefore I am also familiar with HTML/XML/JSON formats and I use professional CAT software (MemoQ and Memsource) and speech recognition software for accurate and natural text input.
