Professional practices Ruth Wiedekind endorses's Professional Guidelines.
Solid education:

I have a university degree in translation corresponding to MA, for Spanish and French, by Universität des Saarlandes (Applied Linguistics and Interpreting/Translation), Germany.
My subject of specialty: technical engineering (mechanical and electrical)

The Spanish Ministery for Education officially recognized my title as „Licenciada en Traducción e Interpretación“.

Relevant industrial experience:

I worked for 8 years at the central purchasing department of an internationally operating German company group manufacturing steel, tubes and components/systems for the automotive industry. And again, at the same company, 1 year at plant maintenance.

Which led to my thorough knowledge of

-> automotive industry, purchasing commodities and procedures, (contracting, controlling, quality assurance, …), project engineering, industrial engineering, manufacturing of steel, steel tubes, press parts and components, production systems and processes, repair and maintenance, total quality management, company organization and structures

Passion for patents:

During 1 month of practical work at the Patents department of a wellknown French manufacturer of electrical devices, I developed my passion for the translation of patents.


I am your ideal partner for the translation of documents from design engineering and internal procedures to supplier management, quality assurance and industrial rights.

Do not hesitate to request a quotation with a fair price for a high-quality translation.
My office hours are: 9 am - 1 pm (Central European Time).
You may, at any time, send me an e-mail or leave me a phone message I will answer asap.
