    Vielleicht haben Sie keine Lust mehr auf unzählige Freelancer und/oder Agenturen, die Ihnen das „Blaue vom Himmel“ versprechen und dann keineswegs die erwarteten und versprochenen Ergebnisse erzielen.

Ich bin keine Agentur und ich verspreche Ihnen auch keine Wunder. Was ich Ihnen aber versprechen kann, ist, dass Sie von mir eine saubere und seriöse Dienstleistung erhalten. Über 15 Jahre Erfahrung im World Wide Web, unzählige erfolgreich abgeschlossene Projekte und etliche Stammkunden beweisen, dass ich das liefere, was besprochen wurde: zu einem Preis, den auch Sie sich leisten können.

    Creator Language & Design

    Spain - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 8

    Communicate your ideas, wrap them nicely, and connect with your audience. I help people communicate in English, Spanish and German, as well as through visuals. My working languages are English, Spanish and German. I translate and create content and design that will resonate with the target audience. After all your goal is to convert your visitors into clients. I enjoy being creative and coming up with new original ideas. I love design and in addition to creating web content I am always broadening my insights on marketing effective web design. I am happy to share my knowledge and help you improve your communication. Great content is useless if nobody reads it. I am a German native speaker and nearly native in English and Spanish, as well as fluent in French. As a language learning fan I speak a few other languages on a basic or intermediate level, but English, German and Spanish have been my working languages for many years. I have a degree in law and have worked as a corporate and M&A lawyer for 6 years. But following my passions I have spent a lot of my spare time studying psychology and graphic design. Today I combine the experience I have gathered in translation, multilingual communication, and negotiation as a lawyer with the marketing, writing and design skills, to create your content.
