Professional practices Jim Stauffer endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.0).
I am a recently retired engineering professional, detail-oriented, with extensive translation experience and the scientific background necessary to research and grasp complex material.

What I offer:
  • Immersion in the subject matter of German medical, scientific and engineering articles, books and patents to thoroughly understand their context and the nuances of their vocabulary.
  • Close communication with other translators and with clients’ staff where collaboration is called for.
  • Idiomatically correct English renderings at a level of technical quality fit for publication, in a style that would be typical of the foreign author’s American counterpart.
