    Translation, Transcription, Text

    Germany - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 7

    I am a 34 year old freelance writer and translator from Germany and am looking for translation, editing/proofreading and transcription jobs from all over the globe. I am well-travelled and well-educated, including a BA in American Studies, Journalism and Comparative Literature and a Masters in Literary Writing. Over the past ten years, I have worked and collected valuable experiences in a variety of fields and businesses which now enables me to tailor my work to each of my client's individual needs and requirements. The cliché of German virtues is just that, but there is a bit of truth in every cliché. Personally, giving those extra 10 percent on top of what is expected from me is just as much a part of my work as are efficiency, accuracy, punctuality, creativity and keeping a clear head when things aren't going the way they are supposed to - all aspects of being a professional that should go without saying. I am also a published and award-winning writer.
