Do you also offer interpreting services?
No. I offer only written translation services. Unfortunately, I am not available for interpreting (oral translation).
Do you also translate texts from German into English?
No. I have an excellent command of English, but I am not a native English speaker. As a rule, translators work from a foreign language and translate into their native tongue. Therefore, I only offer translations from English to German (German is my native language). In case you are looking for a translator who works in the other direction of translation, I can refer you to an English native speaker if you wish.
Do you also translate technical material and medical texts?
Not really. Having previously translated technical texts (e.g. in mechanical engineering), I would like to leave this to a colleague with deeper knowledge and expertise in these fields. You can find an overview of my fields of expertise here: link.
What is a “standard line”?
A standard line consists of 55 characters/keystrokes (including spaces).
What is a "standard page”?
A standard page has 1,650 characters/keystrokes (including spaces). It consists of 30 lines per 55 characters (including spaces).
Do you work with CAT tools?
Yes, I also work with CAT (Computer Aided/Assisted Translation) tools such as SDL Trados. If you have already created glossaries or TMX files for your texts, you are welcome to send them to me.
Can I visit you during office hours?
I work in my private home and am not set up for customer traffic. Contacting me by e-mail, phone or Skype is usually completely sufficient to discuss and meet your requirements. If you have very large documents to be translated, you can also send them to me by post (CD-ROM, DVD, USB stick). If you live in Berlin, I can also collect the data storage devices from your place. There is also the possibility to set up a cloud storage on the Internet (Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox) from which I could then download all the needed data.
What would be the best way to contact you?
