About me

I am a
native German freelance translator. In 2007 I began working full-time with

I lived and
worked in Japan for one year (2010 to 2011) and in Sweden for 5 years. Beside
my main language combination, which is Swedish->German, I also translate
from Danish, Norwegian and English into German. English to German makes up for
about 10 percent of the total volume. Total word count is between 1.5 and 2.0 million words.

My main
subject area is business/commerce and the legal area, but I also have quite a
lot experience with projects in other subject areas, e.g. tender documents and
specifications in the field of civil engineering (some 370 000 words). F
or most of my work, I am bound by NDAs and confidentiality agreements, therefore I cannot be more specific.

A few examples of larger projects are
listed below.


  • Auction portal for second-hand cars
  • Car workshop portal (15 000 words)
  • Good Manufacturing practice guidelines for a confectionery manufacturer


  • Shareholders' agreements/Share transfer agreements (more than 30 000 words)
  • Pleadings, court decisions and settlement agreement in connection with a claim for compensation and damages regarding a construction project dispute (some 35 000 words)
  • Tax litigation correspondence regarding loss deduction of an international company (10 000+ words)
  • Collective agreement (50 000 words)
  • Social-Media-Quick-Response-Guide for a global player
  • Purchase Agreement for hotel property
  • Integrity policies & GDPR (35 000+ words)


  • User manuals for working platforms, lifting and load handling devices
  • Internet presence of a fall protection system manufacturer
