Professional practices Annette Scheler endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
After studying a variety of subjects, including Linguistics (Linguistik), Science of Religion (Religionswissenschaft), Philosophy (Philosophie), Anthropology of the Americas (Altamerikanistik) and Business and Human Resource Education (Wirtschaftspädagogik), I earned my MA in Linguistics and Science of Religion in 1991. Being a “real” linguist has proven very useful throughout my career as a translator: I have a thorough understanding how language is structured to ensure effective, unambiguous communication. Research and writing skills and the ability to communicate concisely and succinctly don’t hurt either.

“The difficult task, after one learns how to think like a
lawyer, is relearning how to write like a human being.“ (Floyd Abrams)

Keep this in mind when looking for a translator who is also a lawyer. Not every lawyer is a highly-skilled writer. I am a language professional with a passion for language and produce translations which are accurate and precise, yet elegant and easy to read.

For nine years I was a partner and in-house translator in a Berlin-based translation agency for law and industry, where I produced countless legal and financial translations for an upmarket client base, including German and international law firms, the Big Four auditors, well-known international investment, commercial, and mortgage banks, major companies from a variety of sectors, including energy supply and telecommunications companies as well as the European Commission's Directorate-General for Translation and the OECD. In 2008, I decided to start my own business as a full-time freelance translator. My translation expertise covers the following fields:

→ Ad hoc notices
→ Annual, interim and quarterly reports
→ Antitrust, Competition & Trade
→ Banking, financial and capital markets law
→ Business Correspondence
→ Capital markets
→ Clearing
→ Codes of Conduct
→ Corporate Finance
→ Credit Derivatives Transactions
→ Due Diligence
→ Emissions Trading
→ Financial Accounting and Reporting (IAS/IFRS, US GAAP, HGB)
→ Funds: financial statements, prospectuses, articles of association, sales material
→ Forex
→ Intellectual property: litigation, trademark, licensing,
→ Investment Funds
→ IT/TMT: telecommunications, media and technology
→ Litigation
→ Macroeconomic analysis
→ Mergers and Acquisitions
→ Minutes of board and committee meetings
→ Offering memoranda
→ Private equity, venture capital
→ Public Relations / Investor Relations
→ Real property law
→ Securitisation and Structured Finance
→ Settlement/Clearing transactions
→ Shareholder agreements and Articles of Association
→ Tax matters
→ Trust and foundation documentation

I am looking forward to your requests:
