Bio

Full-time, independent German-to-English translator with PhD

Native speaker of American English with familiarity of British English, fluent speaker of German, currently living in Berlin

Background

I am a versatile translator and editor who is proficient in academic, business, and marketing writing styles.

My experience lies in translating and editing in the following areas:

Cultural studies (including museum catalogues and books on architecture, sustainability, and urban studies)

Business and corporate communications (financial reports, press releases, internal web portals, workshop presentations)

Marketing (web copy, advertisements, membership campaigns)

With a PhD in German Studies and previous work history teaching English composition to college students, I excel at understanding the intricacies of the source text and finding a fitting style in the target language.

Work Process

I value concise prose, audience-appropriate readability, and a high level of attention to detail in my work.

I can work with any level of client feedback, from clients who want to be involved in decisions about preferential changes and word choices to clients who expect me to deliver an excellent product without any guidance from them.

When editing long projects, I always provide an "editor's report" detailing the text's strengths and weaknesses and explaining suggested edits.

Because I have worked as a translation project manager in the past, I know the importance of making on-time deliveries and ensuring a high-quality product.

Availability

My working hours are very flexible, and include evening and weekend availability. I can also accommodate various time zones.

I strive to answer all requests as quickly as possible.
