Professional practices Henning Bauer endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.0).
I am a native German speaker who has resided in the U.S. since 1995. I have extensive experience translating both from German into English and vice versa on many different levels, most recently as a subtitle translator (mostly English to German) for SDI Media in Los Angeles, California. This position, which involved working on a wide range of different topics, required extreme attention to detail, consistency, and knowledge and research of intercultural, i.e. "lingo," issues in popular culture, sports, and a variety of other areas. Other translation work I have done has been in the academic realm, also covering a wide range of topics from psychology to medieval clockmaking, as well as the occasional legal translation (early on after my arrival in California, I assisted as an interpreter in a court deposition and with the translation of the associated documents). Moreover, a great deal of my qualifications are in language teaching and have involved designing curricula, exams, and other materials in strongly team-oriented environments. I am also highly familiar with Internet-related technologies and have worked as an HTML coder and web site asset designer. Last but not least, I have a passion for video games and for fantasy RPG titles in particular, although other genres have captured my imagination as well.

I like to sum up my approach to translating this way: If it sounds like a translation, I haven't done my job right.
