About

Professional Translations & Scientific Services (German-English)

I am an experienced and skilled translator (German-English, German native) for many years and offer superior quality, timely collaboration, and excellent service. I hold a Ph. D. degree in the natural sciences accompanied by a successful publication track record (20 published articles in reputable journals in English). I have traveled and lived in the UK and the USA for many years and attended many international scientific conferences. I am continuously going back and forth between Germany and the USA to improve my language skills and knowledge.

As an independent translator for almost two years, I have translated the contents of my clients in a clear, accurate and appealing way for the intended audience. I work with different topics but due to my scientific background, I especially enjoy translating life science, medical, pharmaceutical and technology contents. I am very meticulous and always deliver the work within the specified deadline. I offer a free 90-day warranty for my services in case a completed and accepted project needs to be changed or updated.

Work areas in the last two years:
– Life Sciences (e.g., medical, pharmaceutical, clinical trials, SOPs, Safety Data Sheets)
– Technology (IT and telecommunications, industrial manuals)
– General, Business, and Marketing (e.g., correspondence, reports, products, marketing, website localization)
