Translation

Aside from the content of a text, it is its application that governs what terminology and style are appropriate to use. A text, a phrase or even a single word can be translated in various ways. I will translate your text keeping the perspective of the reader in mind, and aim to help you to address your target audience in the best and most appropriate way.

Higher Education & Research

English is the language of higher education and research.

You would like to publish your research results in an international journal? Or you already published your results in English but the editorial office of a German journal offered you to publish your article as well? You need a summary of the contents of an article/book in your area of expertise to assess whether its contents are important for your work or studies? You are soon to attend a conference and are planning to present your latest paper?

You supply the contents, I will take care of anything else such that you can focus on your research.

You would like to start selling your products to German-speaking customers and therefore need German product descriptions, a German manual etc.? You are planning to attend a trade fair, where you would also like to get in contact with German suppliers and customers? And you would also like to direct them to the German version of your website? You have noticed that many Germans visit your website, but they don’t end up buying anything, and you are thinking about having your English texts translated into German?
