I am a detail-oriented translator and proofreader with both a linguistic and a technical background.
As a German native, I can translate all kinds of texts from English to German and vice versa. As I have studied English for teaching purposes at the University of Cologne, my English is at C1/C2 level, and additionally, I could already gain first experience in translating during my studies. Furthermore, I received a professional education as a Technical Product Designer for Machines and Assemblies, meaning I do not only have the linguistic skills, but also the technical knowledge to provide accurate technical translations.
However, this does not mean that I limit myself to technical translations. On the contrary, I regard my work on various fields of expertise, including historical texts, websites, fitness books or subtitling for documentaries and feature films, to name a few, an asset to maintain a broad mindset and to stay flexible in the use of both working languages.
Translation is more than just transferring words into another language. For me, translating also means learning about the products, services and stories on which I work, so I regard every single job as an opportunity to learn something new while translating the originals. This is an aspect I regard as highly important, as an honest interest in the topic helps to find the perfect translation.
With a keen eye for orthography, proofreading is another of my business fields.
I will be happy to help turning your project into a success.
