    I am a native German young professional translator with 8 years of translation and proofreading experience. I have a language, culture and IT magister degree (best 3%; remark: magister is a degree between master and doctor) and profound knowledge in a broad spectrum of fields (e.g. medicine, IT, computer linguistics, literature, teaching, politics, philosophy, mathematics, financing, physics and so on).

I have been living in Japan, China, US, UK and Colombia. I am accustomed with their cultural differences and use most of these languages daily. As a client, consider punctionality, thoroughness and a qualitatively high literal standard my three most important aspects of work as a translator. I would appreciate it very much, if you let me know from the start who is going to read the translation. Case by case, I will shift between technical translation and creative translation and adapt the language and the style accordingly. I am looking forward to your email.
