What Do English to German Freelance Translators Offer Projects?

German freelancers are highly accomplished in spoken and written German, often fluent in both English and German and sometimes offering translations from either source language to the other. Some specialists can even act as a German interpreter. Many freelance translation specialists are native German speakers who are highly proficient in English and do professional translations for your work projects.

You’ll find a broad array of English German translators, including:

  • Commercial translators focusing on business documentation, web pages, social media, and marketing materials for US companies wanting to launch in Germany

  • Certified English to German translators who work on visa and work permit applications and other formal translations such as qualification transcriptions, which you’ll need to apply for a job in Germany

  • Creative content translators who can provide recommendations to a seller about the best ways to translate a promotion or advert from English to German, retaining humor, tone, and style in the target language

  • Technical English to German translators, providing services for businesses or private clients in specific fields, such as translating medical documents, contracts, property purchase paperwork, or insurance forms

Some translators are available for immediate hire, which is ideal if you need a translation from English to German completed quickly. Other skilled freelance translators work on a project basis and tend to submit proposals for longer-form translations or ongoing work. You can hire English to German translators based on the needs of your specific projects.

How Do I Hire an English to German Translator on Guru?

We aim to make the process of finding, filtering, and choosing translators for English to German projects simple. There are two hiring options for freelance translation specialists, depending on your work preferences:

1. Create a Job Post for an English to German Translator

It is free to post a translation job, and you can include all the relevant work details, including your budget, deadlines, the nature and length of the German English translation, and whether you’d like to pay the translator per hour or as a total for the completed work.

Translators can submit a proposal for your German translation projects with their pricing for you to review in your own time. You can also visit each German freelance translator's profile to evaluate their level of translation experience, review work ratings, and service offerings to determine whether they're the right person for your translation projects. You can also chat with the translator before you hire them to ensure they are the right fit for your content.

2. Contact English to German Translators Directly

When you use our quick freelancer skill search, you’ll see a range of symbols next to each translator’s profile summary, which help you find English to German specialists with the right skill level for your projects. These allow you to save a freelance translator profile to your shortlist, chat with a translator via WhatsApp, or request that they send you a translation quotation.

This is a great hiring option if you need an English to German translator with a highly specific skill set or would like to hand-pick the translator you decide to work with. Payments and workflows for your translation projects are all managed through the Guru platform for security and continuity, ensuring you never pay for any translation work until it has been completed to your satisfaction and as agreed with your selected translation specialists.

What Does It Cost to Hire an English to German Translator for Writing Projects?

Like any freelance skill, the hourly, daily, or project rates your translator charges to translate English to German projects will depend on a few variables, including:

  • The freelance translator's level of experience, knowledge of certain business sectors, and their reviews and translation portfolios

  • The complexity, length, and urgency of the translation work

  • The need for your finished translation to be officially certified–a requirement for visa and ID documents

Hourly rates for English to German translation begin from around $5 per hour, with an average minimum translation project rate of $25–you can filter and browse freelancers to compare pricing, skill level, and project costs before making any hiring decisions. Once you have hired a translator and they have completed the project, all payments to the German translator can be paid safely and securely on Guru.

What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Qualified English to German Freelance Translator?

Professional translation freelancers offer exceptional value for money, working independently on each translation project, ensuring they meet your work deadlines and expectations. Rates for English to German specialists are considerably lower than you'd pay a translation agency, but you are still assured of great quality work because a freelance translator relies on their reputation to get future projects and content to translate.

A German translator can be flexible and adapt to your specific translation needs, whether you require:

  • Urgent turnaround times or a completed translation within twenty-four hours

  • Regular or periodic translation work for content

  • Personalized advice if you’re unsure of the right way to approach a translation or translate a specific phrase or name that will have the same context in German

While you can use free online translation tools for some informal translation requirements such as social media content, the outcomes are normally low quality, with incorrect grammar, questionable word choices, or clunky phrasing that appears rough and unprofessional to a native German speaker.

If you need your translation to be of perfect quality, without mistakes or errors, the best option is to hire an English to German specialist to translate your content. A professional translator for English to German content will give you the peace of mind that your finished translation project will be error-free.

What Questions Should I Ask a Shortlisted German Translator?

Choosing between professional English to German translators for your content can be tricky! One of the easier solutions is to post a detailed job description for your translation projects, inviting Guru freelancers with suitable knowledge, skill level, experience, and availability to submit a quotation within your work budget.

Should you be stuck comparing two equally fantastic translators for English to German content, you might explore their references and previous customer reviews, ask about the subject matters or topics they specialize in, review their experience level on their profile, or assess whether alternative services such as editing and proofreading may be useful for your projects. Chat with the freelance translator to get to know them and see if they'll be a good fit for your projects. A freelance German translator commonly offers proofing alongside translation, where they can work on a source document to verify whether it has been translated to a high enough standard and make edits that improve the outcomes or make your translated content more understandable and relevant.

Guru English to German freelancers publish online portfolios where you can have a look at their prior work, including overviews of their rates per hour and project, additional services provided, and the number of translation projects they have completed within the past year.
