I approach every translation as though it was a puzzle to solve. The process of finding and preserving the meaning and intent of the original language while translating is a challenge I relish and enjoy.

I have had the opportunity to translate a wide range of texts from German into English, from the television script of the worldwide televised FIFA World Player Gala, to diplomatic letters of intent to officials in China.  In addition, I have worked on doctoral dissertations, web sites, marketing materials, CVs and resumes, as well as many other types of documents.

I pride myself on being both expedient and affordable.


In addition to translating I am available for comprehensive proofreading and editing services. I provide my clients with finished documents that are grammatically and stylistically correct.

I do more than check the spelling of each document project I undertake, I offer editing advice in area of formatting and content as well. I am a stickler for details and have an eye for finding the mistakes in texts of all kinds.

If you need your resume checked or have a book or dissertation that must be ready for publishing, contact me and I will be happy to put my skills to your advantage.
