About me
I was born in Stuttgart, Germany, and I grew up using both German and English, so I am almost equally fluent in both of these languages.

I did an apprenticeship as an electronics technician at Mercedes Benz in Stuttgart, Germany.
Later I worked in a large printery and was trained as a web offset press operator, where I worked for about 7 years after which I changed to the electric/electronic maintenance department for some 6 years.
This way I gained a lot of experience in operating such machines, as well as in their technical makeup.

Since the company has branches in different countries we also gave support to other countries that had technical problems with their machines, or that needed to contact companies that were situated in Germany. This is where I started to translate technical documents and manuals from German to English or from English to German.

In 2010 my wife and I started volunteering to do some educational work in the Philippines, where we stay several months of the year, and here I started working as a free-lance translator for Nelles Translations, Chicago, IL. and Grimm Research LLC in Milwaukee, USA.

The translation work there includes translation of legal, technical and medical documents in an array of fields.

As I have always enjoyed to work in the electrical/electronic field and enjoy complex technical challenges, I find great joy in translating such documents, understanding the challenge of achieving an accurate translation job in an easy to understand wording.

I would welcome any opportunity to avail my translation skills and experience.

With best regards,
Benjamin Grimm
