I'm a German native speaker who absolutely loves anything that has to do with the English and German language!
Short on time?
Please take a look at what my clients said about me to get a first impression:
Rick did an excellent work, he meets deadlines, the communication is great and he goes the extra mile and provides great feedback which improves the overall quality of the job. I highly recommend him."
"Rick presents rare German language skills. He always delivers jobs on time and the communication is great. That was such a pleasure to work with you!"
"Rick brings a sharp editorial eye to the translation which makes the translation fluent in German, rather than a stilted word-for-word translation of English to German. Excellent work!"
"Rick delivered excellent work on a Brand Presentation I had to translate. His communication was great all the time, he met all deadlines, and his availability was just great.
I would definitely hire him again and recommend him for any translation job."
I'll never miss a deadline because I'll always give you very realistic estimates regarding the time it will take to complete a translation / proofreading. Most of the time I'll finish my work quite a few days / hours before the time's up.
I've been working on Upwork for nearly a year now and in various fields. There's nearly nothing I won't be able to translate, so please don't hesitate to contact me. I can either translate directly in a Word document or use SDL Trados as a CAT-Tool.
I always reply within 6 hours if it's not the middle of the night - most of the time much faster.
I'm well aware of specific requirements for different jobs e.g. exact or more creative translations or which writing style is best for the current project.
I know about the basics of SEO, Wordpress and even more about creative writing (recently publsihed my very first novel). I'll definitely find the right words to get your message to your audience!
I'm really passionate about the German language. Even though I'm not your traditionally educated translator, you'll notice that my work is as great as the work from someone who has a translation degree.
My first priority is to create or translate content that is helpful and enjoyable for your readers and clients. Since you know most about them, I will always pay attention to every detail of your job description while creating the best translation possible. Naturally, this includes that you won't find any grammatical or spelling errors in my texts and translations!
I'm especially passionate about video games and travel but I'm also interested in many other fields.
If you have any questions or suitable projects, please don't hesitate to contact me!
