An advanced command of German.
I have samples and offer unpaid sample translations.

I will accept lower rates for simple texts. My highest was 0.08 EUR per word. I usually ask for half the rate when editing or proofreading, or 20 EUR per hour. But please do specify your rates, I may be able to accept your budget.
I use any discount plan (for fuzzy matches) whichever the agency offers. I give discounts for initial jobs and will adapt to most budgets.
I accept payments via bank transfers, Skrill (Moneybookers), PayPal.

I can do 1,000 words a day comfortably, up to 2,000 if necessary, on weekends, holidays, and after hours.

I use SDL Trados 2006 or Studio 2011 and can use other tools for translation (CAT) or layout (DTP).
I am highly skilled after years of translating in many areas, with close attention to detail and appreciation of good writing. I do my utmost to ensure the best possible quality regardless of payment. My other asset is a high proficiency in my source languages, German and English.
If I anticipate problems with a text, I will tell you so and suggest or find a solution.
Fine examples of my skills are answers for KudoZ. See my ProZ profile.
