Certifying board member on translator state licensing board. Native English and German speaker with regard to contractual, legal, technical and governmental contexts. IT qualified. Not just translate but understand highly technical concepts. * While I´m a high output translator I enjoy the complex technical or legal translation. It is important to me to write it just right. For me precise cultural understanding is important to write what was intended. I´m a translator, who will be your best choice if you like and need a good, sound translation with excellent word choices, which carefully maintains the original meaning of the text. We will enjoy working with each other if quality is second to price, however not priceless. I like the flow of words, I like when they are convincing, moving or cutting just right. Words are meant to accomplish understandings, agreements or productions. * You may take confidence knowing that I´m a certifying board member of the State licensing board in Hesse, Germany for translators and foreign language correspondents. * If your source words are destined to alter the outcome of a business transaction, a contract negotiation or claims settlement, then my target words will help you to achieve that objective. The better your original text, the better my translation. I enjoy meaningful documents aimed precisely at a purpose. It is my pleasure to tranfer that meaning into my second culture and your target language, be that English or German. Professional editing is always included, provided your time plan allows for it–as editing is best the morning after.
