About our work:


Our translations are exclusively of high quality and we have never missed a deadline. We are detail-oriented and conduct extensive internet research to comprehend and confirm the terminology we use. We proofread for each other with the goal that the end product read as though originally written in the target language.


With Kent's professional background, we focus primarily on legal and commercial translations. Edith-Maria also translates medical records and has expertise in reading and transcribing old German handwriting. We both enjoy literary translation as well.


We would enjoy collaborating with you.
