What counts is authenticity.

Growing your business internationally is exciting, yet can also be quite daunting. You perfected your brand voice to resonate with your local target audience and built a reputation that sets you apart.

To continue your success abroad, your business needs to safely transfer its message and all idiomatic nuances into the new language in order to connect with the new audience in just the same way. And doing so can be more complicated than it first seems.

Cultural hiccups and unreadable content can cost you money, waste time, hurt your reputation and slow down sales.

The most efficient and reliable way to get translations that bring a favourable return on investment is working with a language partner who is not only familiar with the culture and use of language in your target market, but who also is knowledgeable about your industry and audience.

SERVICES

Here is how I can help you achieve your goals in the German market:

Translation

Accurate, specialist translation of e.g. user manuals, technical specifications, scientific publications. The translation will stay close to the original and preserve important facts and procedures.

Localisation

Cultural adaptation of websites and marketing materials to help you inform and sell. The translation may sway from the original to preserve message and mood of your text, yet make it meaningful to your German audience.

Proofreading & Editing

The finishing touches to your translation: Have it checked for grammar and spelling mistakes only or add another level of quality assurance to ensure correctness, consistency and flow.
