Professional practices Alison Schwitzgebel endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.0).
Specialist for DE-EN financial, legal and business translations.

I am an English native speaker and hold a German translation diploma, a German marketing degree and a German diploma in business administration (Betriebswirtin) - my thesis was on quality management in the translation industry. After moving to Germany in 1992 I worked in investment banking (M&A) and corporate real estate before becoming a professional translator in 1999. I am well versed in translating IPO offering circulars, annual reports, marketing material, contracts and press releases in a wide variety of sectors - including investment banking, pharmaceuticals, renewable energy, telecommunications and financial communications. I am an Associate Member of the Institute of Translating and Interpreting and also offer certified translations.
