Need a translation into German? Then I am the right person for you!

I am a professional freelance translator with a university degree in translation, specialized in legal texts, with 5 years' experience in the retail/fashion industry, and a wide multi-cultural knowledge thanks to a total of 12 years of living abroad (France, USA and UK). Besides technical translations (mainly in company and labor law), I also enjoy translating in other fields that I am passionate about, like in the art sector (for museums) or in the language learning industry. 

For the language pair French-German I also provide certified translations of official documents.




Thoughts on translation...

“A major difficulty in translation is that a word in one language seldom has a precise equivalent in another one.

Arthur Schopenhauer

“All translation is a compromise – between the effort to be literal and the effort to be idiomatic.”

Benjamin Jowett

“To use the same words is not a sufficient guarantee of understanding; one must use the same words for the same genus of inward experience; ultimately one must have one’s experiences in common.”

Friedrich Nietzsche
