Professional practices Inge Luus endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).

I am a German to English translator specialising in the translation of business, legal and marketing texts. I have an honours degree in Linguistics (Translation Studies), a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Philosophy (Logic and Philosophy of Science), a bookkeeping diploma (with distinction) as well as the first of three levels of a corporate governance qualification through ICSA (Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators: CIS Professional Qualification I: Management and Administration).

I have worked as a full-time freelance translator since 2006 and translate business documents such as annual financial statements, management reports, shareholder agreements, articles of association, contracts (lease agreements, employment contracts, property purchase and sale agreements, etc), Terms and Conditions, commercial register excerpts, requests for mutual legal assistance, court decisions involving commercial law, IT manuals, accounting manuals, technical operating manuals, websites, press releases, brochures and tourism-related advertising. I also enjoy translating academic essays in the fields of economics and corporate governance.

In the twenty years prior to establishing myself as a freelance translator, I worked for various companies in support roles primarily in accounting, finance administration, corporate governance, contract administration and banking and thus have broad, first-hand experience in the business world at my disposal.
