English to German: The Trouble With Horses - Ein Pferd! Ein Ärgernis! General field: Art/Literary Detailed field: Poetry & Literature
Source text - English When a riderless horse interrupts Elizabeth Bennet's daily walk, she is inspired to begin the search herself. Finding a gentleman in the ravine of a creek bed, she scares off snakes and raises the alarm to end up with the man situated at Longbourn for his recovery. Enamored with his dark curls and handsome face, her life appears to be following the fairy tale story line of a novel, that is until the proud, disdainful Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pemberley wakes up.
A sweetheart romantic novella, The Trouble With Horses is meant to be a light read for those irreparably addicted to all things Austen. The writing style does not attempt to mimic the incomparable Jane, and the author hopes you enjoy the fun, humorous story as you would an afternoon tea.
Translation - German Als Elisabeth Bennet während eines ihrer vielen Spaziergänge auf ein reiterloses schwarzes Pferd trifft, begibt sie sich eigenhändig auf die Suche. Sie findet einen Gentleman in der Böschung eines Bachbetts, verjagt Schlangen, holt Hilfe und bringt ihn letztendlich für seine Genesung nach Longbourn. Verliebt in seine dunklen Locken und in sein attraktives Gesicht scheint ihr Leben den romantischen Geschichten ihrer Romane zu folgen. Bis der stolze und arrogante Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pemberley aufwacht.
Die romantische Novelle 'Ein Pferd! Ein Ärgernis!' ist als leichte Lektüre für alle gedacht, die hoffnungslos von Jane Austens Welt verzaubert sind. Der Schreibstil soll keine Imitation der unvergleichlichen Jane sein und die Autorin hofft, dass Sie diese lustige und humorvolle Geschichte wie Ihren Nachmittagskaffee genießen werden.

I am a native German speaker and I qualified as a technical translator for the languages
English and Spanish at the Hochschule-Magdeburg-Stendal (FH) in 2001, after a four year university degree course. I have been trading full-time as Triple Text Translations since 2007. During my time at university I also gained experience of in-house translations, one-to-one language tutoring and liaison interpreting at exhibitions, conferences and trade fairs. I have been living in Scotland since 2001 and use English as my habitual language. I have a professional attitude with good interpersonal skills, a strong commitment to quality and working to demanding deadlines.
