German to English translation for academic articles and presentations

I can translate your article or presentation in the fields of the humanities and the social sciences.

My knowledge in the humanities and social sciences is strongest in these disciplines:

  • the visual arts
  • design
  • semiotics
  • linguistics
  • psychology
  • sociology
  • education

English copy-editing for academic theses, articles, and presentations

My experience in copy-editing academic work includes PhD and Master’s theses as well articles in the fields of engineering, mathematics, management (MBA), sociology, and art. Naturally I am by no means an expert in all these fields. Academic copy-editing is a highly collaborative process.

Before the language editing process starts, I recommend that you ask another subject expert to read your work. Then, when your data and arguments are solid, we can work on the finer points of communicating your research to your audience.

Additional citation, formatting, and design services

Estimates for academic translation or editing exclude any citation checks or document formatting. If you need your reference list and referencing style to be double-checked, I can quote for this on top of editing. The same goes for document formatting, which can include everything from configuring tables to using heading styles. In both cases, please provide me with any guidelines you need to comply with.

I can also consult on other design matters related to your academic work, such as data visualisations or presentation slides for communicating your work.

Request a cost and time estimate

To determine a cost and time estimate for your project, I’ll need a few things from you.

  • Some text. If your text for editing or translation is not yet complete, no problem. A sample of the work or a draft version is sufficient. Please include an estimate of the final length.
  • A timeline. What workflow do you have set up (e.g. with other subject experts or co-authors) and when is your final deadline?
  • Any requirements. Should the final product meet any length, style, formatting or other requirements?

If you’d like to request an estimate, or if you just have a general query, don’t hesitate to contact me.
