Transcreation

Translation of advertising copy such as slogans or adverts requires a great deal of creativity, as they must often be adapted or rewritten completely for linguistic and cultural reasons. To get advertising and marketing copy that will be a hit with your target market, I need detailed information on target customers, medium, the product or service and other details. Drop me a line and we'll talk about your project.


Proofreading

Do you have an English-language document that has been translated and needs an extra pair of expert eyes? I provide proofreading and editing services at an hourly rate, depending on the difficulty of the text and the amount of correction work required.


What I don’t do

As a professional, I only accept work where I am 100% confident that I can do a great job. Below are some examples of where you are better looking for someone else.

  • I work on the native-speaker principle, meaning that I do not translate into German.
  • I am not an interpreter. Translation and interpreting are two entirely different jobs requiring entirely different skills sets. This means I cannot come and “translate” at your business meeting, trade show, wedding, etc.
  • I do not translate legal, financial or medical documents, as I do not have the relevant subject knowledge.
  • I do not translate certificates or personal documents.
  • I do not post-edit machine-translated output

Think about how I can help you succeed. Then contact me.
