Translated by humans

I do not use machine translation and do not “post-edit” machine translated texts. I use Computer Assisted Translation (CAT) tools to ensure consistency of terminology and as a part of the review process. CAT tools also help me translate virtually any document format while maintaining the document settings and layout.

CAT tools usage

SDL Trados Studio 2014 / Passolo
Other tools

translation, localization

editing, proof-reading

Daily output

Translating a maximum of 2,000 words per working day gives me enough time to make sure your translation will meet the highest quality standards. Depending on my schedule it also enables me to carry out smaller translations at short notice; for example your urgent website update or an email to your clients.
