When it comes to communicating your message to the wider world, the right words can make it sparkle

And getting it right is essential – whether you’re localising your website to raise your international profile, looking to increase traffic to your blog or preparing marketing materials to prospect to new clients abroad. Your target audience wants to feel that you don’t just speak their language, you actually get them. That means you also need someone with cultural sensitivity – capable not only of translating the words but of finding the right angle for the target market.

How can I help?

Translation

I provide translation from German into British English. Whether it’s internal communications, customer newsletters, press releases, company magazines or brochures, I’ll produce an English translation that is both accurate and has a natural and fluent style. And if you need me to translate content for the web, I can incorporate keyword research and ensure your English content is SEO-optimised for maximum online visibility.

Transcreation

Sometimes you need something that goes beyond translation. A creative text such as a piece of marketing – especially one that is highly culturally specific – needs something more. A straight translation will never work, no matter how good the translation or the translator. I take your original German text and work with you to pin down what you want to achieve with the English copy. I then use the German text as a starting point and produce sparkling copy that is written specifically with your target market in mind.

Copywriting

Need someone to write your English content from scratch? Whether you’re after increased web traffic or printed materials to impress at your next trade fair, I can help you create captivating content and copy that raises your profile and wins you business. And by ensuring your English web content is SEO-optimised, I give you maximum online visibility.

To handle a language skilfully is to practise a kind of evocative sorcery.
