Working method :
I am a native English speaker, with an idiomatic knowledge of German and English. I prefer to work interactively to translate your words and vision with the style and level appropriate to your target audience but if this in not practical I will work from your manuscript or web page. I have specific knowledge and experience in your subject area, and I have excellent writing skills. When necessary, I come back to you for feedback, analysis, and document revision.
