Besides translating books, articles, or letters, or editing German translations from English or Russian, I help with writing your own teaching or biography, that is, in German. At times, I translate a letter or newsletter into English or Russian.
Another feature is simultaneous translation, on trips, on conferences, or for your guests.
A good book usually offers new impulses the reader may not be used to; so it must be trustworthy. Of course, the same standard applies to translations! Appearing questions I discuss with the author or the editor and even with experts, and at times, the result is a rework of the original for the next print.
My favorite is editing German scripts towards best German, even my own translation: good ideas deserve an excellent presentation. Whatever the original language, the result shall be easy-to-read and easy to understand: rather short and clear sentences, good grammar and spelling, appropriate language, plausibility, good-for-print correction. I also may help to find a publisher.
God bless you!
