    I am a translator of German to English - and vice versa - living in beautiful Vienna, Austria. As a US citizen who was born and raised in Germany, I have had the great fortune to learn to navigate and speak both languages at a native speaker level. I have always been interested in languages in theory and practice and have studied German and English at university, in addition to other languages (French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese). I have experience in translating various types of texts into both German and English - from editorials to websites to academic articles. Having worked as a translator for nearly 10 years on the side, I am currently looking to build up my portfolio as a full-time translator. So, if you are tired of relying on digital translators that turn your text into an incoherent, garbled mess (as hilarious as those results can be), feel free to contact me. I'd be happy to translate your text in a time-efficient, professional and reliable manner and am open to both short-term and long-term projects.

    My name is Fran, I’m an enthusiastic and ambitious content editor, translator and writer with a Bachelor’s degree in Literature, Marketing and Drama. I’m bilingual in German and English and I have over 5 years of experience. I’m currently living in Leeds and working on various projects including developing and editing content for digital marketing companies with different areas such as lifestyle, travel, gaming and culture. I moved to England 2.5 years ago to study Cinematography and Scriptwriting in Brighton. During the course I wrote and directed two short films and collaborated with other filmmakers on a variety of projects including a documentary on homelessness. Besides that, I worked as a content editor and production assistant for BBC Teach German. The outcome was an educational online series with 10 episodes to help British students to learn German. As one of the key members of the project I was responsible for a number of roles ranging from editing and rewriting scripts to creating content and translating (for German and English authorities, contributors, editors and producers) which helped to improve my ability to work flexibly across a variety of roles, communicate with a wide range of people, both face-to-face and over email, and meet tight deadlines. Before I relocated to Brighton, I studied in Berlin and Glasgow where I was actively involved in several theatre productions, mainly as dramaturg and director. During my studies I worked as a freelance writer for an online lifestyle magazine. In my spare time, I like to write reviews and articles, edit content and create the illustrations for the music blog Skewed Quiff, that I run with my partner.

    Reliable, quick, high-quality work done by a native German speaker with an advanced English knowledge. Experienced in translating English - German and vice versa. Proofreading is always done thoughtfully. I have been working with almost every type of text for more than three years. Always meeting the deadline. My time working in economics and marketing proved to me how important public relations are — your deadlines will be met and if any problem arises, we will find a satisfying and honest solution. I know how important it is to represent oneself in a different market, a different language - that’s why I only call a job finished when I’m proud of it. Back in the day, my classmates would ask me to proofread. This was my inspiration to work as a proofreader and also what kept me doing and enjoying it. Your satisfaction is the most important thing for me. If you are unsure or have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. I work best with clients who know what they want, give constructive criticism and have a basic understanding of English or German.

    As a native German speaker, having been born and spent the majority of my life in Switzerland, I possess a strong command of the language. Additionally, I have honed my English skills through my education in middle and high school, as well as through personal training. Furthermore, as a result of my interest in languages and the similarities between Bosnian, Serbian, and Croatian, I have developed a keen understanding of the distinctions and similarities between these languages. My studies of Turkish during high school have also provided me with a strong foundation in the grammar of the language, which has enabled me to expand my proficiency to include speaking and reading. Driven by my passion for languages and my love for discovering connections between them, I am fully equipped to accurately translate and localize any text you may require. I am confident that I am your right choice.
