If you want to jump linguistic hurdles…

I can help you if you want to


  • speak your business partner's language.
  • establish a strong international market presence.
  • improve your communication skills and your negotiating position.
  • use consistent, clear language and create error-free, natural-sounding written materials.

The most effective way to reach your foreign customers is to use their native language. This gives you a decisive edge in international competition, prevents misunderstandings, and reduces costs. I can support you as you build business relationships based upon trust and professionalism, and can provide you with stylistically accurate and technically precise translations!

One example of my translation specialization:
Equestrian sports


One of my areas of translation specialization is equestrian sports. I have combined many years of experience in translating specialized texts with my extensive knowledge of equestrian competitions, equine law, horse husbandry and care, and other related topics.

Many matters involving equestrian sports, from court cases to sporting events, take place in international venues in Europe, the USA, and around the world. Without appropriate linguistic knowledge or the support of a professional language services provider, such matters can be very difficult or even impossible to handle properly. I can provide the expertise you need for these issues and a wide range of others, including retail/wholesale of horse-related products, participation in horse breeding or
foreign shows, product imports or exports involving the German market, organizing international events, and settling legal disputes.
