Petra R.

Creative Translator and Writer - English / German - Customer Service


Vasto, Italy


Translation work: I firmly believe that "translation" has to be much more than getting a text from one language to the other any which old way without glaring errors. Text has to flow and fit the culture of the language as well as the target audience it is written and translated for. I am comfortable with a large variety of platforms, can translate software and use most common interfaces. I have translated a vast variety of texts, ranging from websites for musicians to those of horse breeders advertising breeding stock to medical texts, product descriptions, long lost love letters from ... moreWorld War 1, instructions on how to build a cat climbing tree and general correspondence. I am precise rather than fast but will go the extra mile to meet deadlines, creative, solution orientated and easy and fun to work with. Writing: I am an experienced writer of a variety of content, from a book (non-fiction, in English, published) to various articles on subjects ranging from Theater Reviews to advertising copy, blog content to relationship advice, sporthorse breeding to sales correspondence. Writing is a passion of mine and always has been. less

    German Bible translation 090115
    Petra went above and beyond the scope of this small project, providing helpful recommendations and excellent work. I originally expected a short translation project, but she realized the translation was part of a larger goal, and provided additional research and analysis that helped me achieve that goal. I strongly recommend Petra for future projects of any scope.

    Translate a one page biography from english to german
    Petra is outstanding in her writing skills, not just a ghost writer but knowledgeable too which makes it easy to relate. To be honest, in order to be neutral, I handed over her written brief to a third party to vet. As the person was reading through, he had a smile on his face and said, it is not dry intellectual, yet interesting with a substance and strength. Petra even stretched the extra mile to organise my English handover although it was not necessary on her part. The essence of what wants to be verbalised is clearly expressed in her literary skills both in English and German. I have increased the budget because of the lateral service she extended on the English editing. I would definitely hire her again. Thank you Petra for this awesome work. I just love it...
