THE POWER OF WORDS

 
 
 

Age is the disintegration of possibility and the assertion of probability, with the odds shortening every day.

Biography
 
Horst Woyde is a translator/writer whose career began in the 1950's in Montevideo, Uruguay. His early writings included magazine features of social–political interest. A close acquaintance of Nobel Prize candidate Eugen Relgis, Horst became interested in Humanitarism, a philosophy of human behavior Relgis had developed and of which he was the main proponent. Horst's involvement in this school of thought acquainted him with Doctor Albert Schweitzer, of Lambarene, Africa, some of whose writings he translated.

 

Horst was a regular contributor to Uruguay's university newspaper Conciencia and became its correspondent–at–large during his stay in Hamburg, Germany, from where he wrote about many significant events that occurred in Europe during those days.

 

After relocating permanently in the United States, Horst used his language skills by working as a translator for the Ford Motor Company, a position that led him to set up the Detroit Translation Bureau, which became one of Michigan's major advertising translation and copy writing agencies.

 

Horst's international background, however, pulled him to cosmopolitan Washington, D.C., where he joined the United States Information Agency––now incorporated to the U.S. Department of State–– as writer, editor, translator and occasional reporter.

 

Retired now from active employment, Horst is a regular contributor to the State Department's monthly Spanish language electronic journal, eJournalUSA. His numerous articles on different topics are being regularly published on line and in print.

 

Independent from his government work, Horst writes short fiction stories, which in line with his international experience are set in many geographical areas and cover many themes.

 

His novel in progress, titled War Father, is due to be completed in the near future.
