English German Translator & Proofreader | Legal | Business | Finance

The quality of your translation decides if you can enter the German market successfully and increase your revenue significantly or if you fail in doing so, in the worst case leaving a bad stain on your reputation altogether. I've helped clients like IBM, Adobe, Bang & Olufsen, LifeVantage, Pfizer, Siemens, Wayfair, and WalkMe conquer and stay in the German market. If you hire me, you get theoretical knowledge and over 7 years of experience as a professional translator, proving that I'm good on paper and know my way around the finesse of creating well-written German translations of your texts. I have a C1 English certificate with a final grade of 1.85 and an additional seven university courses in Legal English with a final grade of 2.0. One of my specialties is finding the balance between getting your point across and creating a text that sounds natural for your target audience. Thanks to my legal studies and my 7 year long experience in the industry, I know how important every single word is to convey a certain meaning and to evoke emotions in the reader. "It was a pleasure to work with a true professional in Nicholas. I look forward to working with him again in the future. I recommend his services in translation because of his excellent communication skills and adherence to the agreed upon schedule and budget. We even paid him a bonus because we were so happy." – George Nikopoulos, Canada My main goal is to deliver fast, reliable, world-class services at affordable prices. If you need assistance with translations, proofreading, or localization, please get in touch with me and let me know how I can support you in reaching your personal or professional goals. I don't just translate; I convey context and concept — critical elements of translations. My translations are crafted with outstanding accuracy, clarity, and flow because readers deserve texts that relate to their culture and are simple to understand. For a perfect translation, it's not nearly enough to be able to speak the source and target language; you need an in-depth understanding of vocabulary in both languages and a strong familiarity with the target culture. Thanks to my in-depth knowledge of English and German, I always find the right words. "This was my first time working with Nicholas, and it surely won't be the last. He delivered a great job. I highly recommend him for any English to German translation jobs. Thanks." – Maurica Ferando, Arab Night Tours, Dubai My previous translation experience includes the following: • Contracts • Financial apps • Banking software • Manuals (everything from MP3 players to industrial machines) • Skills for Amazon Alexa • Mobile and PC games • Various homepages (eCommerce, travel guides, software companies) Apart to freelancing on Upwork, I am also senior translator in various companies, these include: • BDSwiss and Octa (Forex) • Wayfair (eCommerce giant) • Uptodown (mobile app store) • iProServices (general translation) • IBM (IT translations) Some of my high-profile clients include: • Siemens • Bang & Olufsen • IBM • Adobe • Wayfair • Peloton • BASF • Nestlé • Pfizer • LifeVantage In total, I've worked with over 100 clients worldwide and across different industries. "Sterling job done by Nicholas. Very friendly and communicative person. Adherence to deadlines and availability to work on short notice were optimal. I did not expect to find such a competent translator who could help with the translation of this long academic project, but he managed to do the job. Totally recommended." – Alessio D’Aquino, Vecury, Germany My academic education in English allows me to proofread and translate general texts on a high level. I'm also fluent in legal terminology, making me skilled in writing contracts and using business English. I am proactive, entrepreneurial-minded, constantly seek new challenges to develop new skills, and always look forward to achieving the best version of myself. This guarantees that I'm always keen on helping you be the best version of yourselves! The hard work, discipline, and persistence have always paid off for me personally and my clients. This is shown by more than 180 five-star reviews on Upwork alone. Few things make a worse first impression than texts that have been poorly translated or have errors. If you want your next project to be localized perfectly to sound like it was originally written in German, don't hesitate to contact me.
