Welcome to
I'm a professional full-time freelance translator with vast experience in handling technical translations and and I've been providing my quality services to all my clients since 2002. My main areas of focus are in automotive, trucks, agricultural, construction or heavy machinery and also software & hardware, audio & video (see below) but I'm able to handle many other areas as well.

My technical education and in-depth knowledge of technical terminology, combined with several years of expertise, active collaboration with many engineering technicians, as well as direct clients and agencies have taught me that quality, a deep understanding of front-end technologies, accuracy, reliability and meeting deadlines are the most important factors for manufacturers, agencies and the ultimate market. By using the professional equipment (CAT and Quality Management Tools), developing and maintaining vast terminology databases and translation memories, I ultimately guarantee unmitigated consistency of the terminology even while handling the largest technical translation projects.

I don´t provide translations for the fields of finance, banking, law or economics.

As well as being an enthusiastic translator I'm also a passionate motorcyclist who never refuses a glass of good, cold beer or a medium steak.
