Frequently Asked Questions

How do you generally correct texts?
I usually correct texts using the “Track Changes” function of Microsoft Word. If you wish, I can also carry out corrections with a red pencil or pen and use the stan­dard Ger­man proof­reading marks (DIN 16511). (Please leave a wide right mar­gin for notes in the latter case.)

Do you also correct texts applying either the old or the new Ger­man spelling rules?
Yes, I offer both of them. Of course, all my corrections will be consistent in apply­ing either the old or the new spell­ing rules. However, it is im­por­tant that you tell me before­hand if you want to have a text cor­rected ac­cording to the old spelling rules.

How do you correct translations?
I compare the English source text with the German translation. Any mistakes and errors will be corrected. In addition, the text will be checked for spelling mis­takes, punc­tua­tion errors, style, con­sis­ten­cy, etc. You can read more about this here: Proofreading and editing.

What type of corrections of translations don't you provide as part of your service?

  • Translations into German from other languages than English,

  • Translations into German without the English source text,

  • Specialist translations into German in areas that do not belong to my fields of expertise,

  • Translations that have been produced using a translation program (e.g. Google Translate, Babelfish, etc.), or

  • Translations containing an abnormally large number of errors and mistranslations.

    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?
