Self-employed Translator and Language Professional
Last active: 04/11/2014
A native German speaker and well-qualified English to German freelance translator with experience translating in Trados, Wordfast and other CAT-tools, as well as with online localisation management platforms.
I am an experienced translator who aspires to translate texts not only with accuracy but cultural relevance. My translations are carefully crafted texts that not only retain their original message but also specifically appeal to the intended German target audience.
I have experience translating content and documents for a variety of different international companies and organisations: financial institutions, electronics and engineering companies, software solution developers, online stores, language schools, the culture/travel sector, private individuals (PhD students, artists etc.)
Areas of expertise:
*Transcreation/ cross-market copywriting/ website translation: localisation of company websites to the German market; translation of company profiles, marketing materials, product and service descriptions, terms and conditions; familiar with CMS Systems;
*Business materials: translation of brochures, press releases, presentations, staff training materials
*E-Commerce sites: translation of e-tailing content
*Software translation: user interfaces, manuals, help files
*Gaming contents: experience as in-house German Localisation Tester in the video games industry; able to localise in-game content, manuals and UI files for different platforms, for consoles and the online-gaming sector
* Proofreading/editing: with more than 3 years experience working as an editor and proofreader and in quality assurance, I will not only thoroughly check texts and translations for grammar and punctuation issues, but will also ensure that the translation reads well and conveys meaning precisely and that the style is fit for its purpose.
*Content writing: I can also write content for most websites, in German and English, especially in the language, language teaching and travel sectors.
