    Moving into a new office

    These are exciting times indeed. Since I started my business in 2007 I was always working from home, sometimes under really miserable conditions, but you don’t really need much as a translator. It basically boils down to a computer or laptop, working internet and maybe a mobile phone. But now, for the first time in 13 years, I have a real office in a real building! Fairly soon I will also put up a sign above the shop window. There are still a few bits and bobs to be done, to be sorted etc. but most of the stuff is already here and set up. In fact, I am writing…

Its streets, houses and forests conceal mysteries which seem to go back in times when, from legends rose something very real, something monstrous.

    What I am doing right now? Ach well …

    You don’t need to be mad to work here, but it might help … Seriously, where did this year go? I mean … woooosh .. and now it is already November and I feel as if I am still stuck in April or so.

It is not yet available, but I hope it will be published soon and then you can buy it on the usual publishing platforms. As always, I…

    Blogging on an island in the wild, wild west

    Blogging. Again! I have a confession to make. I have blogged before. But I think I was never really good at it. Why, you may ask. After all, it is just a blog and you are a writer, so, get going. Well, I think it has something to do with the fact that I am a bit passionate about things that are really close to my heart. And then, when I write about it, at one point, I am getting carried away very often. That can be a good thing to blog or write everything what is on your chest, but it can also horribly backfire and I still feel…

  • book on table


    Here is a list of the books I have already translated. They are available through various channels like amazon, weltbild, kobo, apple, google play, barns & nobles and many more. Some of them are only available as e-books, others also as printed books e.g. paperback. It is great fun to translate a book, so much more satisfying than short snippets of text or data. That can be fun too, but books to me are more fun as I love reading.   The Warning of the Ravens – Die Warnung der Raben read more …           Hello my name is Peter – Hallo, ich heiße Peter read…

    Below you find some of the work I did or am still doing. As I mentioned before, a lot of information from my old website got lost, therefore it is a bit difficult to find my testimonials back 🙂 During the presidental campaign of the US of America I was asked to translate the lifeline of Senator John McCain. I must say, that it was a really interesting thing to do. He earned my full respect, may he rest in peace.       At the same time I also had to proofread the lifeline of the former President Barack Obama which of course was also very interesting.    …
