German to English: Der Verlierer/The Loser General field: Bus/Financial Detailed field: Finance (general)
Source text - German Der Amerikaner John Taylor hat jahrelang gegen den Euro gewettet. Jetzt ist er pleite.
John Taylor ist wahrscheinlich der groesste einzelne Verlierer in der Euro-Krise. Er war einer der erfolgreichsten Hedge-Fonds-Manager an der Wall Street und hat den Einbruch des Euro vorhergesagt. Er hat auch den moeglichen Ausstieg der Griechen aus der gemeinsamen Waehrung weit von den verantwortlichen Politikern kommen sehen. Auf beides hat er Milliarden gewettet.
Translation - English American John Taylor spent years campaigning against the Euro. Now he's broke.
John Taylor is probably the one biggest loser in the Euro's financial crash. He was one of the most successful Hedge Funds managers on Wall Street and had predicted the crash of the Euro. He also foresaw the possible departure of Greece from the common market way before the politicians responsible did. He had bet billions on both those points.

I have helped many people get their message across informally and professionally. Context of the language transfer is very important to me. On occasion, only the gist is required. In literary translation, the feel of the message needs to be conveyed. For reference material an accurate rendition is needed.
