English-German translations for private clients

Forming good relationships with private clients

When providing English-German translation services to private clients, my primary focus is establishing a personal connection. Consequently, I firmly believe that fostering a strong relationship between clients and translators forms the foundation for effective communication. This, in turn, ensures a thorough understanding of clients’ requirements and leads to cost-effective English to German translation outcomes.

Professional Translation for Diverse Needs

Private clients frequently require professional translations for various occasions. Examples range from CVs to personal documents. In particular, for individuals who have lived and worked in a German-speaking country, I can aid in translating professional references. Additionally, I specialize in translating official documents like visa applications, passports, and citizenship papers, ensuring certified accuracy.

For a wider spectrum of private client documents, including driving licenses, bank statements, payslips, and insurance documents, my translation services cater to both English and certified German requirements in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. Furthermore, my experience extends to translating matters related to inheritance, legal correspondence, obituaries, wedding services, and more.

Buying and Selling Goods and Services on foreign websites

When it comes to navigating German online order forms, understanding fine print, or comprehending foreign websites, challenges arise. For this purpose, I provide private clients assistance in completing German order forms, clarifying details, and translating crucial content.

Alternatively, you may be selling goods on eBay, Amazon or similar online platforms. Getting the sales blurb right can save you a lot of time and trouble. Employ a professional!

Property Transactions and Management

As property transactions become more common abroad, accurate document understanding is vital. I specialize in assisting British citizens investing in German, Austrian, and Swiss properties. Whether it’s buying, selling, or managing property, I can therefore help you navigate language barriers and complex legal systems, ensuring clarity and peace of mind.

Confidential and Efficient Service

In terms of service, I ensure rapid, precise, and confidential English-German translation at reasonable rates. With direct communication, your translation needs are handled efficiently, and a tailored approach fosters a robust client-translator relationship throughout the process.

To conclude, don’t let language barriers hinder your personal or business pursuits. Contact me today for expert English-German translation assistance.


I’d really like to recommend Erika Baker’s translation services very highly: she’s offered a really quick, efficient and professional translation of 2 official documents I needed in the process of buying a house. Erika was very transparent about her time scale, she responded to my emails super quickly and she was very friendly on the phone. Her pricing is very fair and good value. This all gave me real peace of mind in what’s a bit of a stressful process.

P.H . - March 2020

We were so thankful for the help, efficiency and quality of the translation provided to us when we asked Erika to translate the Order of Service for our Wedding. Erika was so considerate in her work, not only did she complete our translation for us within hours of taking on the task, it was also evident that a lot of thought had been put into ensuring that the translation conveyed the same sentiments as the original text, rather than simply a verbatim translation which would have been less meaningful to our German guests. We are so grateful for Erika’s help and we would certainly return for any future translations.

Many thanks
