Hi there, nice to meet you!

I’m Kristal. Berlin transplant, California expat. I hold the CIOL Diploma in Translation and I’ve been in Berlin for 11 years, long enough to explain the difference between a Pfannkuchen, a Berliner, and an Eierkuchen. (Hint: there may or may not be one at all.) Oh, and I can almost pronounce Oachkatzlschwoaf. Just in case you were wondering.

But enough about me. What you really want to know is… how can I help you? 

You need a German to English translation that is clear, attention-grabbing, and easy to read? I’ll take care of it for you.

I translate websites, marketing materials, and lifestyle texts so that they impact your target group in English just like they did in German.

I help businesses find just the right words to get close and personal with their English-speaking customers. I can either translate and adapt your existing German website copy, edit your existing English text, or create something new specifically for the English market.

We’ll work together closely to make sure I really understand your target market and brand before I start working. Whether I’m translating or writing entirely new content for you, I take the time to make sure it will really hit home with your audience.

Why me?

Here are some of my key qualifications:

  • CIOL Diploma in Translation
  • WLS Professional Certificate in Translation
  • 2 years as team lead for localization, editing, and copywriting
  • Completely bi-cultural, with over 10 years of residency and professional work experience in Germany.

I’ve worked for US companies and German businesses. I’ve learned to create, edit, and translate in collaboration with multiple departments, and I’ve also learned to work with small businesses who need me to guide them through the process. No matter what your situation is, I’m eager to help.

The one thing that stays the same, no matter what country I’m in or what company I’m working with? Communication is key. The words we use are crucial, whether they are directed at a customer or a coworker. And finding the right ones—well, that’s pretty much my thing.

I don’t believe in resting on my laurels, either. I learn continuously so that I can improve the services I offer to my customers. Here are some of the professional development activities I’ve undertaken recently:

  • 3-month in-person advanced translation training (Berlin, 2017)
  • Ongoing training in copywriting, content development, branding, and writing for the web
  • Ongoing training in multi-lingual SEO and keyword research
  • Advanced grammar and proofreading training and certification (Poynter News University, 2018)

When you work with me, you can expect exceptional service, timely communication, and a finished product that you are proud to show the world.

If you would like to see more about my experience or services, you can view my website or my LinkedIn profile.
