I am a US based translator, who grew up bilingually in both Germany and the US. I consider English my first language, but have a native fluency in German. I bring to my translations a native feel for the language, coupled with years of language teaching and study. I have completed extensive studies in the humanities, earning a Master of Arts and completing Phd coursework in German Language and Literature.
Specialties: literature, music,the humanities, technical manuals (I have worked as an in-house translator in the automotive industry and worked in the computer industry as both a translator and as part of an international sales staff), marketing materials, general correspondence, certificates.
As a writer myself, I devote great care to providing not only accurate translations, but also preserving the style and flow of the source language.
