Professional practices Eric Zink endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I am an American citizen and have lived in Germany since 1994. I teach translation and interpreting (German to English) at the Academy for Translators and Interpreters in Bamberg, and have done so for six years. In 2011, I began actively seeking new clients for translation work.

I earned a Bachelor of Science in Literature (with a field of study in mechanical engineering) from the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. After finishing my Army service, I completed a Magister degree from Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg in Anglistik with a minor in Germanistik.

My inclination and occupation make me an ideal choice for anyone who desires a clean, easy-to-read, well-structured document from a German or English source text. My occupation and training have made me flexible at acquiring new concepts and expressing them in clear, accessible English.
