I am a working professional translation review specialist currently employed by the German automation technology company Phoenix Contact. As a member of an international communications team, I specialize in translating and proofreading technical translations for pre and post-sales literature, marketing and technical documentation. I possess many years of experience in speaking and writing the German language, in addition to a bachelor's degree in Journalism from Penn State. My talents combine the abilities to not only provide an accurate translation but a polished and professional final product. I remove all traces of clunky word-by-word, out of context mechanical translations and reveal a clear, concise and smooth adaptation of the original text.
