Translation

In my translations I put great value on reflecting the style of the source text as the language of different documents, e.g. business letters, technical manuals or marketing texts, is substantially different.  If required, I will also localize the target text, i.e. adapt currencies, local times, measurements as well as cultural characteristics to the target market. Technical terms will of course be researched thoroughly so that the target text will not "sound translated". In my areas of expertise, I always keep up to date in terms of content and language, and keep abreast of the latest market and technology developments.

As my client, you will have direct contact to the translator – there is no mediating agency. That way you can influence the results of the translation and I can respond to your individual requirements.

Reliability, timeliness, quality and discretion are my highest priorities.
