With 15 years of experience as a freelance translator for the language combination German-> English, I have transformed literally thousands of pages of German text in the most varied subject areas into elegant, intelligible and appropriately stylish English. As a Canadian native speaker of English, I move comfortably between UK and US English usage on a daily basis. There is hardly a subject area I haven't worked in at some point, and though my special passion is the fields of art and history, I regularly translate the most varied technical texts to the complete satisfaction of my customers of many years. 



Reliability and flexibility


 Making realistic agreements as to deadlines and conditions, and keeping to them, is self-explanatory. I don't "bite off more than I can chew", and I deliver on time, as agreed, and at the expected level of quality. 



I possess and can use all of the usual modern programmes and tools necessary to prepare and process documents.
