I work as a self-employed translator with the language combination German into English from my home office in Leeds, UK. I am able to translate from all kinds of German, including Austrian and Swiss German into native British English, with US spelling and vocabulary being a possibility. I particularly specialise in both Standard German and Austrian German, since I have spent time living in both countries.
I have ten years of freelance translation experience on a part and full-time basis, and have been working as a self-employed full-time freelance translator for the last three years. I work for a number of well-known and accredited translation agencies such as The Translation People, Fachübersetzungsdienst GmbH in Switzerland, AST Language Services, Aktuel Translations, Absolute Translations Ltd and more, and I also have direct clients in companies such as Siemens, Mercedes and Daimler too. In addition to this, I have three years of experience as an in-house translator, having worked at Sky Deutschland in Munich, D'Agostini Patent Lawyer in Munich and Tricentis Software in Vienna. I am happy to provide references, a copy of my CV and undertake any required test work.
I work with Trados Studio 2015 and all standard Microsoft Office applications. My position at Tricentis furthermore gave me experience of translation directly into computer software. I have additionally previously worked with Transit NXT and would certainly consider this again if I were to receive regular work with this software.
I look forward to hearing from you!
