DOETS

Dowling's Oxford English Translation Services 

If you are seeking a German to English technical translator capable of translating the smallest to the largest technical documents that run into the tens of thousands of words, whilst keeping it accurate, consistent and tuned to your in-house style, then you have in me a seasoned professional and welcoming partner with more than 15 years of full-time technical translation experience, and who is fully equipped with the latest translation software (Trados Studio 2021, Transit NXT Freelance Pro, MemoQ 9.5 and Across v7.0).

I run a freelance translation business under the trade name DOETS and specialize in German to English technical translations for, among others, the manufacturing, mechanical engineering, automotive, aerospace, energy, medical instruments and software industries. I also provide a fully comprehensive editing, revision and proof-reading service for English texts. 

Efficient project management, fluency in German, in-depth knowledge of engineering and excellent writing and copy-editing skills in English have been the key to my success over the years.

You can expect the highest quality in terms of the translation result, as well as a project management and customer relationship experience that moves from strength to strength, as these skills have been put to the test over the past 7 years running my own freelance translation business and the result has been a resounding success. I now wish to bring my success to your company and help your business thrive through effective communications.

I have a wealth of experience in a wide range of technical fields gained over 10
years as an in-house technical translator at the translation agencies Star UK
Limited, Guildford and Prologos Sprachendienste Gbr, Cologne, Germany. I have
also worked as an editor of translations at Bayer AG Corporate Communications,
Handelsblatt, Framfab and MWK Marketing agency.
