  • I am a NAATI (Aust.) certified translator with specialist experience in the translation of books and other major (fiction & non-fiction) manuscripts; many of the ca. 25 book titles translated in 35 years are still in print (for details see GOOGLE: ‘translated by U.Erich Friese’. SEE PHOTO BELOW).
  • I provide a comprehensive personal & ID document translation service (e.g. Police Certificates, birth – death – marriage certificates, job references, school / university transcripts, etc.).

  • I offer specialist translation services (fully accredited and verified) for general sciences & life sciences, animal husbandry, human- & veterinary medicine (diseases), pharmacology, ecology, environment, aquatic sciences, zoology and marine biology. - I also translate applied science subjects, as well as a wide range of general (current) topics.

    I am a trained biological / aquatic scientist (B.Sc., M.Sc.), with extensive work experience in applied science administration. - I was born in Germany and educated in the USA and in Australia (citizenship). German & English are my native languages.

    In addition to my accreditation with NAATI (National Accreditation Authority for Translators & Interpreters, Australia), I hold accreditations from the Chamber of Commerce Koblenz, as well as from various US Military Authorities.

Military service in the US Army (Engineers), stationed in Germany, has provided me with translation expertise in civil engineering and military law.

Comprehensive references and accreditation credentials available on request

Advanced computer skills and comprehensive administrative experience.

PRICING is dependent upon size of project and client deadline, but generally NOT in excess of US$ .07 per word target language (English). Discounts for large projects (e.g. book manuscripts, etc.) can be negotiated.

My translations are accurate and I work fast; I have never missed a deadline!!
