Our services

We translate English texts dealing with medical or physical subjects, as well as non-specialized texts. Examples are journal articles, abstracts, presentations, manuals, leaflets, letters, even books (provided that you do not insist on getting the translation within a day). We will not automatically do a standard translation, but will discuss your individual requirements with you. You might for example need ...

a 1:1 translation, including tables, figure captions, formatting etc.
only a translation of the raw text that you can insert into your own templates
a German resume of a lengthy text
editing or proofreading of an existing German translation
a translation tailored to a particular target audience

We can supply translations via email, via fax, on disk, or as hardcopy. Using the import and export filters of MS Office we can deal with a wide range of file formats.

We will provide a quick and reliable service, delivering to you translations which are both accurate and of good style. If we should feel that we are not fully competent to translate a particular text, we will say so, and, if possible, give you the contact details of another translator who might be able to tackle it.
