Work in partnership with your English-German translator
At Iolante you work directly with me, Erika Baker, your professional freelance English into German translator. While German is my mother tongue I have lived in the UK since the 1980s and have over 25 years of translation experience. I am familiar with the culture and business practices of the UK as well as German-speaking countries in Europe. This makes me a true German into English language specialist.
Offering bilingual business support services
As a self-employed experienced language specialist, I know that reliability, quality of work and customer service are what clients need. I therefore offer you a tailor-made translation service. On occasions, this may
mean that they will suggest alternatives to a “translations only” service. As part of my bilingual business support, I may suggest that I contact your German-speaking client to clarify a situation. I can carry out online research to find out about competitors. I can ring government offices, banks and insurance companies to locate the correct contact person for you.
These services are meant to improve communication with clients, government agencies, solicitors and other parties you may need to get in touch with. They are intended to cut down on the time needed to solve problems and as such will save you money. Simply ask your English-German translator!
I also offer a wide range of translation services to private individuals. For example, I help them with managing a holiday property abroad. I also provide them with bilingual documents for their international wedding, so that the event is enjoyable for all.
A language specialist you can hire with confidence
Because I am professionally qualified and have a long-term proven track record of working as a German translator into English and English into German, I offer first class translation services. In addition, I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists.
I specialise in commercial document translation and certified translations of official documents.
First class translation services
My English-German translations are accurate, confidential, efficient and reliable. I work for commercial, industrial, governmental and private clients alike. My aim is to deliver first-rate services at fair prices. Please see my translation rates pages for detailed general information on translation prices and my profile page for further information.
