What areas do I specialise in?
I offer professional translation services from German into English (my native language).
My service includes any research that may be necessary into the background of a topic and specialist terminology.
I have experience and knowledge in the following fields:
- Popular science / science communication
- Research funding and policy
- Health and healthy lifestyles
- Nutrition and food (scientific and socioeconomic aspects)
- International development / poverty / fair trade / ethical consumer
- Environmental issues / environmental science
I also have experience in a wide range of other areas, as you can see from the list of examples below.

What specialist tools do I use?
To help me deliver high-quality translations with consistent terminology, I use SDL Trados Studio 2017.
Of course, I can also handle translations in standard applications such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
How much do I charge for a translation?
I normally charge per word, counted in the source language (the language I am translating from). The rates I charge reflect my attention to quality and experience but are also competitive. I may apply a surcharge for especially urgent jobs.
I will always agree on the price with the client before starting a translation, so the client knows exactly what to expect!
