Be it the handbook for your state-of-the-art production plant, the fancy website of your new business, or the latest patch for your amazing MMO:

Diversity in style is my passion!

As a technically skilled translator and creative editor I make sure that all your contents hit the mark(et). Because I will not only translate, but also localise and transcreate your texts into my native language: German.

Any doubts, that your existing documents are not suitable for the intended audience? No problem! Let me proof-read and edit it. I will find the unique style for your unique solutions.

After a 4 year employment as a foreign language correspondent in 2005 I finally made the decision to fully switch to the language industry. During a decade as a freelance and in-house translator as well as a localisation supervisor I got to know the processes on both sides: organisation as well as implementation of translation projects.

Over 2 million words translated as a technical translator provided an extensive insight in my current fields of specialisation: IT, software, hardware, automation as well as mechanical and industrial engineering.

Furthermore, I may add 1 million words in the entertainment industry. Working more than 2 years in the localisation department of a game publisher in China, I could additionally gain a comprehensive background knowledge of the development and publication of video games.

Another over 1.5 million words translated in this sector literally tell its own tale.

Being a member of the Asetrad (Asociación Española de Traductores, Correctores e Intérpretes) and the IAPTI (International Association of Professional Translators and Interpreters) you may have the peace in mind, that all your contents will be handled according to the industry’s best practices.
