My area of expertise are professional, high-quality German to English translations for all legal, finance,
business and marketing documents. My specialty are complex matters where accurate and meaningful
translations that also capture the intention and professional language are needed. I am able to
understand the commercial and legal realities where other translators may only be able to produce a
literal translation of a document.

As an expert translator, I work for many of the leading translation
agencies as well as commercial clients including law firms, tax advisers, barristers, experts, valuers,
estate administrators, property developers, accountants, auditors, corporates, banks, insurances,
investment companies, embassies and private clients.

As a legal, finance and business specialist, I also offer bilingual support and consulting in due diligence projects, litigation and website localization for law & tax firms, accountants, consumer goods and the construction industry.

My experience spans over 7 years as a certified professional translator for German-English plus the commercial experience of a a 15 year career as a company director, investor and entrepreneur in Germany, the USA and Australia. I am well versed in business, legal and financial English and German and am a regular translator for official and legal documents for investigations, court use, legal profession, banking and finance.

I am available on short notice and my rates for German > English start at € 0.09 per word (base rate for legal/finance, SDL Trados, memoQ and Across).

I offer quick turnaround in document and original layout and format, including logos, letterheads, drawings, tables or signatures.

I am an associate member of the American Translators Association (ATA).

I keep my availability calendar updated, please feel free to email me.

"I have been teaching DE>EN Legal translation at NYU for 17 years and I also grade candidate's tests in that pair for several large NY agencies. In my experience, this falls well within the range of a translator who would be considered "very good".
