Jonathan Bruton DipTrans IoLET

German-English translator

My qualifications and experience

I have been working as a freelance translator from German into English since 2009 and am now resident in Shrewsbury, UK. I am a native speaker of English and a fluent speaker and writer of German. I hold a languages degree from the University of Cambridge and a Diploma in Translation from the Chartered Institute of Linguists in London and am a member of this prestigious institute for language professionals.

I offer a translation service that is professional, fast and exacting in terms of accuracy, readability and appropriateness of tone and language. I take pride in a scrupulous attention to detail and my use of painstaking research to make sure that difficult and obscure terminology is properly translated

If you would like to test out these claims, feel free to send me a short extract (up to 100 words) from your document, which I will translate for you free of charge. Click here to e-mail me.

I can work with virtually any format. If your company has previously worked with translation software such as Trados or MemoQ, you can send me project files in those formats. I can also work with any Microsoft Office program and PDFs.

Some of my areas of expertise:

Law. Employment contracts, cooperation agreements, general terms and conditions, court judgements.

Corporate. Internal publications, staff magazines.

Tourism. Websites and promotional literature for hotels in the Austrian Alps

Marketing. Corporate Internet and Intranet sites, press releases, catalogues.

Publishing. Books on subjects as various as the history of the Porsche 911 Turbo, Buddhism and group therapy!

The bottom line. As you can see, my range of interests and skills is very diverse, yet I consider myself a highly competent all-rounder rather than a jack-of-all-trades! But you don't have to take my word for it: contact me and try my services out for yourself. Or click here to see what some of my customers say about my work.
