English to German Translation Projects
We assist organizations with documentation or marketing material (e.g. brochures, manuals, website content, PowerPoint presentations, product labeling, etc.) that are written in German and require accurate translation into English.
Of course, in addition to English to German and German to English translation assignments, we can also assist you with the translation of the world's most popular languages to and from German: Arabic ↔ German; Spanish ↔ German; French ↔ German; Italian ↔ German; Japanese ↔ German; Portuguese ↔ German; Russian ↔ German; Korean ↔ German; Chinese ↔ German; Hindi ↔ German; to name but the most popular.... We can source translation expertise for virtually any language pair.
German Language Style
Our translators, editors and proofreaders render well-written and clearly understandable texts. We place a high value on rendering a finished product that is faithful to the language style of the original text.
German to English Translation Projects
We assist businesses in finding the best available German to English language translation resources – including experienced German language translators (native-speaking German if appropriate or required).
In our experience, a German language native-speaker may not necessarily be the right translator for the job. (See: Common myths and misconceptions about translation.) Though a native-speaker may be preferable for certain translation assignments, having German as a native language may not 'translate into' German language expertise (pun intended). An experienced linguist with strong German and English language translation credentials, in-depth experience and professional credentials, regardless of native language, may often prove to be a better choice.
Identifying and securing the services of the appropriate German language resources is what we do! (Refer to our German translation assignment process for information on our German translation project management process).
In a nutshell, we use professional translators who have a solid mastery of the German language (grammar, spelling, cultural nuances) and a solid understanding of the subject matter.
Once we are confident that the appropriate freelance resources have been identified and certain that we can honour the project deadline, we submit a quote for the translation assignment.
If we cannot secure the appropriate resources, we will do our best to refer you to German translation sources of information that we have confidence in.
