German-English translations, UK
Peter Bowen BA MITI
Based in London, I provide German-English translations for business and private clients. I became a professional freelance German-English translator in 1992. My areas of specialisation include marketing materials, legal documents, certified translation of official documents, insurance, technical translation, IT, art, culture and history.
I obtained a BA (hons) in Modern Languages (French and German) from Bristol University in 1986. In addition, I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Technical and Specialised Translation issued by Polytechnic of Central London (1991). This postgraduate diploma covers the following languages: German, French, Norwegian, Danish, Swedish and Greek.
I have been a full member of ITI since 1994. Due to having access to a large network of translators for assistance in many different language combinations, I can handle many different projects.
Apart from offering German-English translations, I translate from Danish, French, Norwegian and Swedish into English.

Certified German-English translations
I am a member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting. Therefore I am authorised to self-certify my own translations from German into English for use in the UK.
Please be aware, however, that different organisations have different requirements for certified translations. It is essential that you find out whether and how the translation of your document must be certified, notarised or legalised for your particular intended use before you order the translation from me.
Please email me the document(s) you need translated or phone me, and I will give you a quotation.
