Professional Video & Computer Game Localization English-German

Dear Visitor,

you have found a professional translator with a university degree (see Education & Experience for details) with hands-on experience in localizing video/computer games (in-game dialogues, menus, manuals, box text, websites, newsletters etc.). I have been exclusively localizing video/computer games on a daily basis for more than 6 years, totaling more than 1,000,000 words. You can view a selection of my projects by clicking on the "Project list" tab or by clicking here.

I have gained a thorough understanding of video and computer games (this includes terminology, conventions, game mechanics etc.) by playing countless games myself. I started playing games back in 1984 (i.e. 30+ years of gaming experience) on a Phillips G7000 (Magnavox Odyssey²). Ever since, I have played countless games from virtually every genre on more than 15 game platforms.

Moreover, I am in close cooperation with an excellent team of German native computer and video game translators (German Game Translators) and therefore able to professionally handle large projects including proofreading. I have managed, worked in and successfully completed several game localization projects of up to 200,000 words.

I will be happy to provide you with my CV containing a list of recent projects upon request.

So if you want your localized game to be as good as the original, feel free to contact me!

Education & Experience

I graduated at Leipzig University's Institute of Applied Linguistics and Translatology (IALT), Germany, in April 2008 with the degree "Diplom-Übersetzer" (master-equivalent degree in Translation Studies).

I've been working as a freelance translator since 2004, translating from English to German and from German to English.

Prior to becoming a translator, I finished a 3-years professional training as IT-Systems Engineer at Siemens AG, Germany.

Currently, I am also working as part-time Lecturer in a translation module at the Department of German, University of Leeds, UK and as Language Consultant at a Leeds-based company working in the field of User Testing / Readability Testing of product information leaflets (PILs) for pharmaceutical products.

If you have any further questions, please do contact me.
