Andrea Kraus–Translator with a detective’s eye for detail

Successful communication is based on professional language proficiency.

  • “We’ll need a beamer for the meeting.”
  • “Did you become the money?”
  • “I forgot my handy at home.”

Who hasn’t laughed at such obvious translation fails?

But it’s no longer funny when these bad translations concern your company,
your image, or your customers.

Where it gets really annoying and downright serious is when operating instructions, presentations, websites, or glossy brochures are written in poor English or even worse German. This can not only drive away customers, but in the worst case, even harm them.

What I can offer you as an experienced translator and editor:

#1
High-quality translations from English to German and German to English

#2
A team of trained native speakers

#3
Personal craftsmanship instead of superficial machine translation

#4
All texts proofread by a second professional translator/native speaker

Whether it be in written or audiovisual form, wherever you come in contact with your customers, readers, or listeners, every line of the translated text should evoke the nuances of the source language.

Let’s talk about the language of your company!
