|Highlights:||I am a German native who has been living and working in the US for about 15 years. I speak both languages fluently.
I graduated from the University of Applied Science (Fachhochschule Fulda) with a Bachelors Degree of Business Administration, majoring in Marketing in 1993 and started working for SLMA (Student Marketing Association) after receiving my work permission. I was promoted 3 times in 4 years.
Even though I was born in Germany and received my college education in Germany, I am fluent in both languages. As a translator, I cannot and will not know everything, but I know where to find the information.
The most important merit of a professional translator in my opinion is to decline a job offer if the job does not fall within his or her expertise. I do this almost once a week. I will provide quality, attention to detail and accuracy. I have never missed a deadline. Not because I work faster than the competition, but I know what I can do, in what time frame without jeopardizing the quality that every client deserves. I will quote you a reasonable price, accept a reasonable deadline and communicate with my clients frequently to keep them up to date on the project.
When I accept a job, I will deliver - on time, accurate and without errors.
I have translated everything from manuals, legal correspondence, contracts, dog breeds and their history, a book translation on Kama Sutra, risk management, European history and countless tourist and economic projects. I learn new facts every day and it is a very rewarding career choice. I am also able to read and translate the old german fonts ("Alte Deutsche Schrift","Fraktur").
Accepting challenges is the basis of my life experiences and something I do with confidence. I am a committed individual with pride in being professional, accurate and proficient. These are the qualities that make an excellent Freelance Translator.
Please contact me for all your translation needs, I am usually willing to begin employment immediately. Thank you for your consideration and your time. I value both tremendously.
