Native speaker of U.S. English with Ph.D. in German Literature from University of California, Berkeley. Over 25 years' freelance translation experience covering diverse subject areas. Many years' experience teaching German language, literature, and computers. Much experience translating, writing, and editing computer books for American and European publishers. Extremely computer literate (PC, Mac, and UNIX platforms; consult me for complete details). A quick study with new technologies. My past translations also cover many other fields, including general business and marketing, the humanities (with an emphasis on literature), social sciences, technical and instruction manuals, and homeopathic medicine. Another specialty is reading old German texts and handwriting; in 1992, I attended a special course at the Herzog-August Bibliothek (Wolfenbuettel) for this very purpose.
