    Hi, my name is Michael Curtis N., but I would really appreciate it if you called me Curt. I have spent the last twelve years traveling back and forth between the USA and Germany. My education and my profession have given me this grateful advantage. I graduated from Mississippi State University in December of 2000 with a B. A. in Foreign Languages. Between the years of 2001 and 2012 I have mainly lived in Dresden, Germany, where I have worked as an English trainer and translator.

In November 2012 I moved back to the USA and I would now like to put my gained knowledge and experiences to work for you and your translation needs.

    Germany - Last active: 27 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 4

    "If language is not correct, then what is said, is not what is meant!" After my graduation in translation and linguistics I started working as a freelance translator. In the meantime I have founded my own translation office. Since 3 years now I have been creating texts, translations, transcriptions as well as voice over for business and private clients. WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE? A solid feeling for English and German language which is based on a bilingual education and 2 years residence in the United States. A degree in translation and linguistics, which provides me with a deeper understanding of language. Professional language skills do not appear overnight. My service contains a lot of experience, ambition as well as perfection. If you are interested in high quality translations and are willing to pay a fair price I will create the words that make your success! FORMER PROJECTS: TRANSLATION: --> product descriptions (QuBeat GmbH, Zalando) --> kids software applications (EasyBits Kids) "It was great to have Stefanie working on our project! Attentive to details, responsive and accurate. Thank you Stefanie!" EasyBits Kids --> translation & narration of interactive child audio books (Talking Talk) "Stefanie helped me with a translation and voice over of my children's book "Ellie Rides". She was a pleasure to work with and very professional and communicative. She delivered within the time-frame agreed and the quality of her work is outstanding. I would not hesitate to use her again or recommend her to others.“ Ryan Heitner - Talking Talk. --> translation of website content (EF Education, Group2e GmbH, FSC, etc.) "Stefanie has exceeded all of our expectations! Smart, very attentive to details, with excellent approaches to solutions. High quality translation delivered way before deadline. We are looking forward to working with her on further projects. Thank you Stefanie!" Frankies_Shop "Stefanie delivered a very good translation. Without request she adjusted SEO strategies that will bring our website forward. A very good translator, innitiative and creative!" Group2e GmbH --> translation & phonetic description (Eltsoft, private clients) "She did a very good job. The quality met expectations and it was done in good time." Eltsoft --> transcription of audio & video material --> translation of an online dictionary (wordreference.com), ongoing project
