    English: Attention! Due to a longer waiting period between project phases I am right now free to take on projects. At the moment I am employed by the Marvel Comics Group via Language Connect, UK to translate comic book back issues (1968s - present) of Spider Man, Avengers, X-Men, Iron Man, Thor and many other superheroes - but as mentioned, I have extra time on my hands. I am a native German speaker with near-native English proficiency and excellent written and verbal skills in both languages (scores: top 10% of 2300 tests taken in the English to German Translations Skills Test; top 20% of 310 000 tests taken in the English Spelling Test and above average in the U.S. English Basic Skills Test). I have longstanding experience in translation, editing and proofreading of non-technical and technical documents from English to German and vice versa. I dig deep to get idioms and phrases translated/interpreted just right - if you hire me you will get the best of both worlds. For 15 years I was the co-head of the English-German translations desk for the publishing companies Aurora Productions, CH and Activated Desk, UK, all the while working in an English speaking micro-environment. In this position my focus was on translations from the ground up, proofreading and quality control. Most of the material was on the topics of personal development, professional coaching & training and on religion & spirituality. To further underscore my proficiency and language awareness: I hold a degree as a TEFL-Teacher (teaching English as a foreign language); I am a certified Life-Coach and coach clients in both languages; I regularly update websites in both languages, German and English. Besides writing related work, recently I have been doing German voice over projects and editing (cutting and pasting) of audio files for German-English language teaching DVDs using Audacity and Adobe Audition (New York Institute: German-Englisch III, German-Spanish II). Other non-writing skills I have acquired and gained experience in (and are useful for English to German localization projects) are creating and editing Indesign documents, photo post processing in Photoshop CS5 and CS6 and creating Multimedia slideshows using iMovie. Deutsch: Achtung! Ich befinde mich in einer Wartephase zwischen Projektabschnitten und kann nun für eine Weile andere Arbeiten annehmen. Zur Zeit habe ich einen Vertrag mit der Marvel Comics Group via Language Connect, UK als Übersetzer für Comic-Heftausgaben von Superhelden wie Spider Man, Avengers, X-Men, Iron Man, Thor und vielen anderen - aber wie erwähnt, gegenwärtig kann ich mich anderen Projekten widmen. Deutsch ist meine Muttersprache, zudem beherrsche ich die englische Sprache schriftlich und mündlich auf hohem Kompetenzniveau und bin nahezu Muttersprachler. (English to German Translations Skills Test: Unter den besten 10% von 2300 oDesk Testteilnehmern. English Spelling Test: Unter den besten 20% von 310 000 oDesk Testteilnehmern. U.S. English Basic Skills Test: Überdurchschnittlich gut) Ich habe langjährige Erfahrung als Übersetzer, Redakteur und Prüfleser von englischen technischen und nichttechnischen Dokumenten ins Deutsche und umgekehrt. Ich stelle systematisch sicher, dass Idiome und Redewendungen auch dem Original entsprechen - wenn sich mich engagieren, liefere ich Ihnen das Beste beider Sprachuniversen. Ich habe 15 Jahre lang in einem englischsprachigen Mikroumfeld die Übersetzungsbüros der Verlagshäuser Aurora Productions, CH and Activated Desk, UK mitgeleitet. In dieser Position beinhalteten meine Aufgabenbereiche Übersetzungen, Korrekturen und Qualitätskontrolle. Die Themenbereiche der übersetzten Publikationen umfassten Lebenshilfe, professionelles Coaching & Training, sowie Religion und Spiritualität. Um meine Englischkenntnisse und mein Sprachbewusstsein zu unterstreichen: Ich bin Inhaber von Diplomen als qualifizierter TEFL Englischlehrer und als zertifizierter Life-Coach (ich berate Klienten in beiden Sprachen); zudem aktualisiere ich regelmäßig deutsche, sowie englische Webseiten. Abgesehen von textbasierten Arbeiten, habe ich des Weiteren bei Studioaufnahmen meine Stimme für Deutsche Hörbücher geliehen, sowie die Audio Bearbeitung und den Schnitt von Audio Sprachkursen mit Audacity and Adobe Audition durchgeführt. (z.B. New York Institute: Deutsch-Englisch III, Deutsch-Spanisch II) Fernerhin habe ich langjährige Erfahrung mit Fertigkeiten, die bei spezifischen Lokalisierungsprojekten von Vorteil sind: Erstellung und Bearbeitung von Indesign Dokumenten, digitale Foto-Nachbearbeitung in Photoshop CS5 and CS6, sowie die Erstellung von Multimedia Slideshows in iMovie and Adobe Premiere.  less
