English into German Translator, Editor, Copywriter, Resume Writer, Proofreader

If quality is your first concern, I can serve as your one-stop English into German translator, editor, proofreader, writer, and copywriter for almost any text related to your premium product or service offering for the German-speaking market. I am also an experienced German resume translator and writer who can translate, edit, and transform your English CV / resume into a typical and impactful German CV / resume.

The fact that I am a native-speaking German living in Germany assures you that every translation reads as if it was originally written in German. This ensures that you optimally address your German-speaking target audience with excellent translations and transcreations that consistently reflect the quality of your products and services.

I hold a Master of Arts degree for both English and German, and have substantial marketing, advertising, and PR experience. I also have in-depth technical expertise and interests, and personally use many of my clients’ products, solutions, and services in my everyday life.

For over sixteen years, I have worked as a full-time professional translator. My reputation for quality has led me to become the EN>GER translator of first choice for renowned global companies and international translation & localization providers. I have translated, localized and edited the website content, corporate presentations and documents of many satisfied clients including various Fortune 500 companies.


My areas of special expertise:

- Corporate communication: letters, quotations, website and intranet content
- Marketing and advertising: campaigns, brochures, leaflets, slogans, case studies, whitepapers, success stories, presentations, promotions
- Public relations: press releases, newsletters, magazines, B2C and B2B communications, social media
- Personal documents: CVs / resumes, cover letters, job applications
- IT, TelCo and networks: cloud, storage, virtualization, backup, mirroring, compliance, privacy, encryption, disaster recovery
- Automation, Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0: automation systems, workflow optimization, change & supply chain management, business process improvement (BPI)
- Security: video monitoring / surveillance, perimeter protection, fire / gas leak / intrusion detection and prevention: CCTV and infrared / thermal imaging cameras and sensors, video and alarm management
- Consumer electronics: navigation devices, digital cameras, home entertainment, audio / video, and multimedia systems
- Hardware and peripherals: smartphones, tablets, notebooks, printers, storage media
- Education and training: online courses and tutorials which ensure compliance with EU regulations, company guidelines, and safety regulations incl. anti corruption and bribery trainings
- Travel, leisure and tourism: sights and attractions, hotel descriptions, travel guides
- Renewable energies: solar and wind power, management and reporting tools
- User manuals, operating / safety instructions and help systems
- Book translations including detective novels, adult fiction and new adult romance
- Copywriting: marketing and advertising, PR, social media (e.g. twitter and facebook posts incl. content plan creation)
- Ghostwriting (German only): social media, journalistic, and literary texts (incl. biographies)
- Editing / Proofreading: all above mentioned text types and areas of special expertise

Of course I am always open to requests for work in new areas of expertise, especially if they are already somewhat related to the aforementioned fields.
