I translate articles of magazines, websites, and PR-texts that meet the specific demands of the German market. My focus is the reader with his or her particular needs.

There is no "off the rack" treatment, no translation made by software. You will get translation of high quality.


By putting the meaning of the words to the same meaning in the target language I form the text with linguistic instinct to a comprehensible composition with good style.

My main experience lies in the field of magazines for children, consumer elctronics, video game magazines and game solutions.


Translation + Localisation + Typesetting


You want to publish English magazines or books on the German market?

You will get a comprehensive range of services: I advice you reagarding content, research country-specific data, translate and typeset the texts in InDesign, and finally proof-read the pages. The result is a high quality magazine written and edited for the German reader.



Are your German websites or publications correct regarding orthography, grammar, and punctuation? I proof-read your texts, make corrections, and give advice on style and comprehensibility.


Public Relations


Do you want to transfer your products to Germany, Austria, or Switzerland? I offer the implementation of your Public Relation to the German market. Based on your English PR documents I deliver the proper words for your PR campaign.




Communication takes place via internet or phone. You send me your documents as PDF, Office documents (.rtf, .doc/.docx, .pages, .odt) or InDesign (.indd) files via internet (e-mail, filesharing server) and receive the edited documents the same way - simple in and out.



If you have any questions or like to get a quote, please call me or write an e-mail.
