Simultaneous and consecutive in court, chemical plants, legal meetings, with law enforcement. Simultaneous interpreting is my favourite. I can almost get into a state where I am in trance and all the words only stay in my short term memory, and later I don't remember anything of the subject matter.o


I have translated legal papers, technical documentation, software program literals, help files, presentations, etc.


It is relatively easy to reply to short e-mails in any language. I have had e-mail exchanges in many major languages: English, German, French, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and Dutch.


To write long technical documents or complex business letter requires almost native speaker competence. I am a native German speaker, and I have native competence in English.
