Experienced Video Game and Multimedia Translator (English to German)

Are you looking for someone who writes for the ear? Who favours natural-sounding dialogue over stilted "translatese"? Supplements accurate translation with imaginative transcreation where necessary, and knows how to adapt a script for recording? Then I might be a good match for your needs.

I have worked as a translator/editor on the following genres, platforms and text types:

  • Action-Adventures, RPGs, MMORPGs, JRPG, Family, Sandbox, Point N’ Click Adventures, 4X, RTS, TBS, FPS, Racing
  • Console, PC, Mobile, Browser, Motion-Controlled and Virtual Reality (VR) Games
  • Script, UI, Subtitles, Manuals, Box Copy, Website Content, Press Releases

I have been playing video games since the DOS era, own a small but sweet collection of retro consoles, and regularly take my up-to-date gaming PC for a spin. My familiarity with a wide variety of gaming genres allows me to keep mechanics-related queries to a minimum. I am also an avid reader capable of emulating a wide range of writing styles, from Elizabethan Drama to Spy Thriller.

M. A. in English and German Linguistics, Final Grade: "Sehr gut" ("Very Good")

Need a believable German name for your character? A German tagline that will hit home with your audience? Reliable advice on auto-generating error-free German sentences? I can help you with suggestions that are easy to understand, yet firmly grounded in current linguistic research.

My fields of expertise are the following:

  • Historical Linguistics and Language Change
  • Inflectional Morphology
  • Phraseology
  • Proper Names

And if you don’t need any of these things, you will still benefit from my comparative linguistics background – through competent, nuanced translations and grammatically accurate text.

Creative and Analytical Copywriter (German)

Do you require engaging, varied, customer-centred copy for your website or brochure? I have been writing online copy and product descriptions for over a year now – to good reviews from satisfied customers. I have experience with SEO and natural language generation systems.
