Whether you’re creating commercial copy, essays, scholarly publications or literary texts, you need to be confident that your translator will preserve your unique style. Getting this right demands years of experience.
My own professional experience covers a broad spectrum of contemporary essay writing as well as texts by artists and curators. I have also translated scholarly texts relating to visual and popular cultures, climate change, social innovation and design, intellectual property and media art, as well as European and international politics. Other recent work highlights include the translation of school curricula for a leading bilingual Gymnasium and the translation of course descriptions for a major German technical university.
