Professional practices Ute Specht endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I am a sworn/certified/court registered full-time translator (University of Applied Sciences in Cologne). I have been working as a freelance translator for almost 2 decades. As a native speaker of the German language I have my specialization in the technical, business, legal and general areas.

My first inhouse job was as a technical translator with a German company for plants and systems for the food and beverage industry.

Rapid changes in the IT and internet fields made it necessary to stay tuned and to work more in these areas. 

Translation from: ENG > DEU
I work with Trados 2007, Wordfast 5, MS Office 2016, Trados Studio 2019.

Ultimately, I have been translating operating and training manuals, safety instructions, patient interviews, user manuals, MSDS, short contracts, software strings, etc. I do regularly translate certificates, public documents, memorandum and articles of association as well as texts of general contents.

I also offer editing work for Machine Translations in the technical field.
