Who We Are

German Translator

Christiane Focking

a state certified German translator

…  and her network of native translators

I’m an experienced state certified translator, and above all one with a passion for translating. That’s why I translate only within my specialist subject areas and into my German mother tongue. For all other language pairs in German, French and English, I work with highly qualified native speakers. The result: you would never guess that the texts we have translated were originally written in another language.

High-Quality Translations

It’s best to make doubly sure.

My translations are carried out by human beings, and human beings make mistakes. That’s why I apply a strict rule to all of my work – the ‘Four Eyes’ rule.

Every translation is carefully double-checked by an editor. The editor will not only carefully examine the language for accuracy and grammatical correctness but also give it a final stylistic polish.

We are not only good at languages – we can also write. The texts we deliver to you will therefore be of only the highest quality: accurately translated, yet still easy to read. You will see from our translations that we not only live up to this challenge – we love it, too.
