Professional practices Richard L. Weiss endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.0).
As an attorney, I have been reviewing and translating documents in German, Indonesian and several other languages as well as English since 1994. Professional translation is a normal part of what I do. I started with courses in professional translation of German and French to English at the University of Pittsburgh. I took German classes at the Goethe Institute in Germany. I also studied some Japanese in college. I lived and worked as an attorney in Indonesia for several years, where I took private lessons in Indonesian, Spanish and Chinese. I attended an executive MBA program in Barcelona, Spain. Later, I expanded my translation to work to other related languages, e.g. Dutch, Portuguese, Italian, Malaysian.

I truly enjoy languages and translation. Plus you get the benefit of translation by someone with a JD, MBA and an LLM in international legal studies, who is familiar with a wide range of documents and terminology. Most recently, I have been working in document legal review and translation in the medical and pharmaceutical field.

Work is done on a first-come first served basis. Even though you receive a quote from me, I may become unavailable if someone else hires me for another project first.

Rush, technical or legal work may be given a revised quote after reviewing the source text.

If there is any part that is handwritten, stamped or not clearly copied, I may ask that it first be sent to me in typewritten form in the source language.

Thank you.
