I am a native German speaker and a professional freelance translator who provides first-class English to German and German to English translations with a focus on quality, guaranteed turn-around times and a high standard of customer service. I am also an Associate Member of the Society of Translators and Interpreters of British Columbia (STIBC) - English to German. For me a professional translation means more than replacing words from one language with words of another -- it is a complex process that requires attention to detail, excellent knowledge of both languages and experience, all of that is part of my professional philosophy. I pride myself on being reliable and professional at all times, delivering that extra bit of service to ensure that my translations are correct, and most importantly understood. I am also a qualified teacher for German, English, French and Russian as Second Languages.
If you want professional translations and someone who always meets deadlines, then I am the right freelancer for you. I can cover a variety of topics, from history over adult to business- and legal matters. I am a bilingual German/English, trained Foreign Language Correspondent and hold an academic degree in International Business Studies. I have lived in Germany, China, Denmark and Spain. Currently I work full-time as international customer relationship manager for an online travel agency. In the past years I've had a lot of experience translating documents, conversations, etc. from German to English and reverse, especially during my studies and my parallel work as student assistant to a professor of Business English at the same university. As a trained Foreign Language Correspondent, translating has been a big part of my training and has been tested and approved by the German Chamber of Commerce. Furthermore, in my last position at a Danish telecommunications company in Copenhagen, where I was responsible for the company's move into the German market, I was required to translate legal documents, e-mails and phone conversations on a daily basis both, from German to English and reverse.
Patrick H. Agency Contractor
I am a native German speaker. My English skills derive from my school education, strays abroad, which have given me lots of opportunities to practice, and an over the years developed fanaticism for watching movies and tv series in original language (English). I do translations from English into German. The source may be in written form as well as recorded speech or a video file (i.e. for subtitling). Furthermore I offer proofreading of German texts and translation review.
