Translation & Tuition

German – English


Do you have German documents that need translating?

I translate from German into English and specialise in technical marketing and automotive texts. Because I started out as an in-house translator working on all kinds of material, I also accept texts on more general topics.

Want to improve your English?

I have a Cambridge English qualification in teaching English to speakers of other languages. Let me help you expand your knowledge of the English language and British culture.

Whichever skill set you need, you can rely on me to provide a friendly and professional service.

I look forward to working with you.

Let me produce clearly understandable English versions of complex German texts for you.

I have 20 years' experience as a translator, mainly for luxury car manufacturers but also a variety of other sectors such as marketing, business, and academia.

My background is in information services and financial data and I also have a strong interest in horticulture, so these are other topics I am generally comfortable with.

Together we can develop a plan to achieve your language learning goals.

I am a CELTA-trained teacher of English as a second/additional language and am a British native speaker.

I have experience of teaching groups as well as individuals and now teach online. Previously I worked as a language assistant in a German school (students aged 11 to 19). I have also tutored adults and taught an advanced translation class at Master's level.
