Thank you for visiting my profile page.

It is my mission to provide accurate and stylistically flawless translations from and into German and English. I have honed my skills since 1998 and am now a seasoned translator of fiction and non-fiction. I also specialize in legal translations as well as business and marketing texts.

My meticulous work guarantees excellent results.

My rates have nothing in common with those usually proposed on the job board here, which are often below standard and sometimes outright predatory.

As a professional, I am committed to best business practices, including business ethics, and established fair pay in our industry.

I partner with authors and publishers, academic institutions, law firms, translation agencies, and serious direct clients who appreciate excellent work.

With my paid membership here, I do support other features such as Kudoz (please view my Kudoz record) and the forums (a discussion board).

Only by supporting through paid membership do I receive's Red P certification and only by having this certification can I appear at the top of the list of translators presented to prospective clients in the directory search ("find a translator"), although originally, a successful KudoZ record did suffice.

With my Kudoz translations (terms other translators needed help with), I have assisted hundreds of colleagues for almost 15 years. As a KudoZ editor, I have ensured the correct posting of questions.

I hold university degrees from Salzburg University in Austria (BA in Political Science, Mass Communication) and Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio (MA in Mass Communication, emphasis in Film and Film Theory).

I taught German language classes (in German) and German culture courses (in English) for many years at the University of Toledo (until 2019).  I have lived half my life in Austria (until 1985) and have lived since then mainly in the United States. My wife Susannah Sulzer is an editor of English texts and collaborates with me. She is a native English speaker and fluent in German.
