We at A. & S. WITTE PartG (estd. 4/2011), i.e. Astrid Elke, holder of a DipTrans IoLET (GER to ENG credential, verified as per her profile at as well as a holder of a Certified Pro badge in GER to ENG), and Sebastian Witte, Court-certified translator for English/Spanish <> German and English <> Spanish ( Certified Pro in ENG to GER and SPA to GER, cf. his profile at ), specialise in the translation of all kinds of documentation in relation to trademarks, including trademark certificates, trademark applications, trademark litigation, articles on trademarks and company trademark profiles, as well as other intellectual property rights, such as patents (incl. patent litigation, like the parties' briefs), designs, utility models, copyright, in competition law as a related field of expertise and also in the law of obligations (such as general terms and conditions of business, contracts), commercial, partnership and company law, property law (land law etc.), data privacy, employment law, insolvency law, financial accounting (in accordance with IFRSs, GASs/DRS, German GAAP/HGB, Swiss GAAP FER, Austrian GAAP/UGB, US GAAP, UK GAAP), real estate, financial markets, including financial oversight and regulation, the banking sector along with banking regulation, human resources, mergers and acquisitions, incl. due diligence reviews, and taxation.

In-depth knowledge in this closely linked number of core fields. These are complemented by the specialist area of Education (for example degree certificates, etc.).

Appropriate style as per what the respective specialist field requires.

Our availability calendar can be viewed here. It is updated on a regular basis.

We collaborate with a team of carefully selected specialised linguists with a proven track record in their main fields and sound expertise (as evidenced by KudoZ points and/or relevant industry experience). Hence the large number of language pairs: ENG <> GER, SPA <> GER, ENG <> SPA, POR <> GER, FRA <> GER, ITA <> GER. The team proficiently handles legal, accounting, intellectual property law, education, commerce, finance, architecture and insurance.

On-time completion - every time. Our own, extensive, subject matter-specific SDL MultiTerm termbases help us ensure precision in translation and, where advisable, terminological consistency. Able to respond to your messages by way of precise communication, and, if need be, also at reasonably short notice. Availability for preliminary enquiries or heads-up notifications over the phone: good, yet subject to certain workload restrictions. There is, in any case, an answering machine or voice mail system available to use. New messages will always be picked up during slightly extended office hours Mon-Sat within the next two hours, or in rare cases, 2.5 to 3 hours in the case of the former (landline) - within 5 to 25 minutes in the case of the latter (mobile phone) unless availability calendar is on orange or red which might indicate we
are either out of office/travelling or are working at capacity.

Please be aware that we only accept pdf files for translation if they adhere to certain specific requirements, such as being clear and legible and being in the same size of print that was used to type them originally. We do not accept any A3 pages that have been reduced to A4 size using a photocopier.

For contact details, see our website and our CVs above. We will respond to your e-mail without delay. Astrid's advanced level SDL Trados Studio and MultiTerm certifications can be viewed here.

We look forward to convincing you of our capabilities, making you a happy and returning customer.
