Translation & Proofreading
Putting My Clients First
I’ve been working as a translator, English proofreader and copy-editor since 2015. The view from my home-office window has changed a few times since then (from the Grünewald forest of Berlin to the outskirts of London, the Portuguese countryside and South African suburbia).
I take pride in providing my clients with focused, accurate and excellent service.
MY LANGUAGE COMBINATIONS:
German to English/Afrikaans
English to/from Afrikaans.
I translate website content, blogs and other texts from German to English or English to and from Afrikaans.
I also proofread and edit English texts for non-native English speakers. The bulk of my experience is in Academic essays, presentations, correspondence and related texts, specifically in the fields of Social Science / Anthropology, Linguistics, history, border studies and narratology.
My roots are South African, and both English and Afrikaans are my native languages, and I have spoken German from a young age.
I strive to ensure that my prices remain competitive and affordable. This focus on price and service is why my clients are so loyal to me and are happy to recommend me to others.
I highly appreciate Gisela's sensible approach to authorship. She preserves the spirit of the text, improving its grammar, style, and readability. Therefore, I would strongly recommend her.
