I have worked as an English to German translator since 2001, when the need for sophisticated software localizations became evident: While the professional localizations of films and books are fulfilling highest quality standards today, the localizations of many software programs unfortunately lack precision, completeness and wit. As a software developer and artist I have learnt to handle both complex techniques and human needs. A professional translation makes the user feel comfortable with a product that is so intuitively understandable as if it had been made directly in the target language.
