"Translation is more than your text in another language"

Translations from English and Spanish into German

I offer translations in areas I am particularly familiar with, including - but not limited to - tourism, marketing and education. These are some text types I will be able to help you with:

 

Websites, blogs and newsletters

Brochures and magazines

Training material

Non-fiction and fiction books

 

My particular focus lies on translations for the tourism industry, e. g.:

Hotel descriptions

Tour descriptions

Travel guides

Travel brochures

Texts for websites, blogs and newsletters

But also documents for internal use, such as training material.

 

Translation plus external review

For some projects, a review by an external proofreader is recommended. This can be a good idea when the translation will be published - or even printed - and no review will be done by the client. I offer a package deal "Translation + Review" in cooperation with a qualified colleague in Germany: https://www.lektorat-von-brunn.de/

Transcreation

A good translator will never provide a literal translation but always keep the target audience and culture in mind during the translation process. The result is a text that sounds completely natural to the German reader. Sometimes, however, you might need even more than this.

Transcreation means the translation of the original plus an adaptation using a client briefing. Advertising is a typical case for transcreation, but other text types also benefit from it. Generally speaking you can say: Whenever the image - of a brand, a company or an individual - is concerned, use transcreation.
