Professional practices Tobias Ernst endorses's Professional Guidelines.

If you are looking for English to German patent translations or any other material related to patent and trademark law, look no further. I hold degrees in physics and translation, am an IT wiz, and have 16 years of experience as a freelance patent translator and am now an admitted patent agent with the German Patent and Trademark Office and the European Union Intellectual Property Office.

Further, I am the head of a team of seasoned English-to-German patent translators that offers four-eye quality patent translations from English into German that are ready to file, such as translations under § 35a PatG [DE], claims translations in response to R. 71(3) EPC, translations required during court proceedings and the like. All patent translations provided by the team are reviewed by me in person prior to delivery.

Yet my true passion is not just science, technology and patents - my true passion is language. During my career as a freelance translator, I have collected ample experience with the transcreation of marketing copy and press releases, as well as with the translation of technical articles, whitepapers and scientific papers. My mission is to make my customer happy with German copy that faithfully conveys not only the technical subject matter, but also the tone, style and emotions of the English original.

To cut a long thing short - I just might turn out to be the language loving German tech&science nerd that you have been desperately looking for.
