Welcome to my website


I have lived and worked in Germany as an English teacher, writer and translator since 1981. This has meant the accumulation of experience in all walks of life and business.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, for example, a good deal of my translation work was to do with conveyor belt engineering and gas pipeline technology. Over the years, however, I have come to focus on translations where the quality of style and readability are as important as the content.

I now focus on translation, copywriting and proofreading in the fields of advertising, PR, tourism, journalism, corporate identity documentation, terms & conditions, logistics and website texts.

Since 1999, I have been a regular contributor to the London-based The Linguist, the journal of the Institute of Linguists.

I look forward very much to hearing from you.
