I am a project manager for translation and content writing projects. Founder and CEO of The Happy Beavers. I chose a team of excellent translators, editors, proofreaders and content writers and together we offer high-quality services. If you hire me, you will receive a native high-quality result in all mentioned languages in my profile.
I am the right person to talk to if one of the following points applies to you:
• You want to go beyond receiving “just a text in another language” and you are looking for content that is marketing- and SEO-optimized.
• You are afraid that choosing the right freelancer might take very long and you just want to get a high-quality job done.
• Your project is long-term and might involve multiple people, perhaps in multiple languages but you don’t want to talk your project over and over with every single freelancer, instead, just one party to deal with.
Available to chat about your needs. Ready to help your business grow.

My motto is: "An engineer for technical translations!"
Starting off as a software development engineer in Johannesburg, South Africa (1992-1996) and Berlin, Germany (1996-1998), I became gradually more and more involved in software localization projects due to my secondary interest in languages and gained experience as a software localization engineer (1998-2000) in Austin (USA) and Munich (Germany). I have nearly 20 years experience in the field of technical translation, software localization and L10N project management. Extensive knowledge of programming languages such as C++, Java, Assembler and markup languages like HTML and XML is adefinite plus.
Since 2000, I have been running my own translation/localization business based in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. Companies in the fields of electrical engineering, automotive and heavy machinery are among my clients.
I am a German native speaker residing in Berlin, Germany, who offers multiple services. I am specialised in technical translations but translate a few other fields as well to keep my work balanced. I have worked as a translator since 2005 and obtained my university degree as a translator and interpreter ("Diplom-Translatorin, Übersetzen & Dolmetschen") for English, Italian and German in 2009. In addition to translation work, I do reviews/proofreading/QA of various texts and translations, as well as transcriptions and post-editing of machine translations. I am a sworn translator and a member of the Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators BDU. Nice to e-meet you!
My special areas are technical (automatition, mechanical engineering) and legal translations from English, French and Spanish into German. I also provide localization services for clients who need websites translated into different languages. Web language and the necessary advertising touch will be assured by me. I can also assist in technical aspects of localization tasks e.g. SEO and code adaptations. A big passion of mine is being an interpreter at Criminal Court Berlin, the largest Criminal Court in Europe where I also use my linguistic skills.
