Translations into german, Content Writing, Proofre...

Germany - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 11 - Portfolio: 7

Translations, German Content Writing and Proofreading with a professional attitude. I translate your content (blogs, PRs, product descriptions etc.) from English to German. The result is a German text, which fits the needs of your consumer, website and also yours. The text will be localized and written for the German market and the German consumer. The same professional attitude I have in my work as text writer. The German content is also written for the German market with the special knowledge of how a blogpost, PR, product description - or what ever you want - must be written, that it affects the reader - with the result of buying, leasing or ordering informations. If you have already an German text (written or translated) I can offer you to proofread it for mistakes (grammar, punctuation, spelling etc.) and also rewrite it for easy reading and getting the message to the point. Next to writing and translations I also can transcribe your German interviews and videos or give your words a German voice for Videos, Helplines, Apps, Audio Books or e-Learning courses. I am open minded to new work, new experience and for sure you will not regret it. On my portfolio on oDesk you can see what I have already done (and it does not show the half), and feel free to ask for a portfolio with sample texts and translations. If you want to be up to date with my writings – I have a little private blog, where I write about different German products: testenundbloggen.wordpress.com
