Translation & Transcreation English into German – beyond literal translation
I “translate” and “recreate” the original text into German whilst making sure it carries the same message and is appropriate in the context / for the target group for which it is intended. I am a native speaker of German as spoken and written in Germany (de-DE), but I am also proficient in Swiss High German (de-CH) and Austrian German (de-AT).

Proofreading, Editing, Review
From correcting linguistic errors (e. g. typos, grammar and punctuation mistakes) in German texts to a full review / revision of the German target text against the original English source text incl. amending literal translations by polishing their wording, style, and syntax.

Copywriting German
From scratch or based on existing English or German content incl. performing all required interviews and research, e. g. for success stories / case studies, blogs, or social media posts.
