I am a full-time freelance translator with 40 years of full-time experience in the field of translations. I translate from English to German, as well as extensively from Danish to German. As a sideline, I also supply translations from Swedish and Norwegian. I was born and raised in Germany and have returned to my home country in 2010. I spent most of my adult life in Denmark, even 1 1/2 years in California, but have always maintained close ties to the German culture.

I have an excellent range of experience in a vast number of subjects, including business and government communication, management technologies, personnel manuals, tourism, jazz music, contracts, law, public relations, software descriptions and technical and instruction manuals of all kinds. The style of my translations is adapted to the nature of your documents – literary, technical, colloquial, formal, poetic, or whatever your readers may expect. I have also supplied more than 20 book translations from English to German, mostly to Karl Müller Verlag in Erlangen, Germany, during the 90’s, as well as approximately six million words of English/German translations on various philosophical, religious, scientific, administrative and educational subjects in the 70’s and 80’s.

QUALITY COUNTS: I have invested more than 1,500 hours in building my own multilingual dictionary database, and I make extremely rich use of the Internet in meticulously verifying the up-to-date terminology of my customers. Customer terms and preferences are regularly recorded in my database. In addition to this, I use a significant personal library on a wide range of subjects.
