Jon Reynolds Translations

I passed the IOL Diploma in Translation examination (German-English) in 2008.
Prior to that I gained an MA in French and German from the University of Cambridge in England.

I mainly specialise in translations related to the automotive industry,
having worked as an in-house contractor for a major German vehicle
maufacturer for 20 months. Translated texts included vehicle glovebox
manuals, technical specifications, legal contracts, commercial
documents, publicity material, marketing copy and press releases.

I also have substantial experience in tourism and travel
translation. I have translated countless hotel brochures and tourism
websites along with marketing materials on wine regions, cycle trails
and hiking holidays.

I have a background in the theatre, having also trained as an actor, so I can provide translation services in relation to arts and leisure.

I translated this art book from German into English (2010).

Every winter since 2012 I have translated press releases and publicity material relating to the winter sport of luge, more precisely the FIL Luge World Cups, World and European Championships, and the Olympic Games.

I am also an experienced video game translator, having worked on console releases and a massively multiplayer online role-playing game since 2009.


German client, automotive manual: "Eine hervorragende Übersetzung" (An excellent translation).

German client, winter sports press work: "Lief total perfekt. Super Job von allen Beteiligten!" (Everything was perfect. Great job by everyone involved).

German client, wine brochure: "Thank you so much for your fantastic translations – they are a real pleasure to read."

Slovakian client, tourism:
"Jon has helped us with around 300 translation jobs. Since we consider
his work the most professional among our German into English linguists
he has always been our number one translator to go to."

Swiss client, press work: "Exceptional translator and pleasant to work with."

Italian client, video games: "Very good translation. The only changes required were preferential."
