I specialize in business processes, engineering and industrial products, particularly automation, motors, and variable speed drives. My previous customers included many different machinery OEMs, as well as various industrial users: pulp and paper, oil and gas, chemical, automotive, food and beverage, etc.

Translation Experience:
I translated operating manuals and instructions, catalogs, product brochures and advertising materials part time while employed as a business manager for Siemens. I began translating full time in 2002, and have since localized technical handbooks, product specifications, newsletters, PowerPoint presentations, training materials, quotations and press releases. I regularly translate annual and quarterly management reports for two German companies.

My broadband connection to the Internet is always on. I work wiht PC running Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2010, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint.

I am a Canadian professional engineer. I worked as a manager in sales and marketing for a German multinational organization (Siemens) in Canada and USA for many years. During that time I translated both formally and informally from German to English.
I started translating full-time in January 2002.

You will receive no word for word translation from me. I pay particular attention to correct English syntax and prose, while retaining the semantic layer of the German source.
