Why me? Why Languistory?
It’s easy to think that there is an equivalent word in another language for every word in English, and vice versa. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Try machine-translating the phrase, “Out of sight, out of mind,” into Russian, and then back-translating it into English. Whatever the result, just hope it doesn’t return, “Invisible idiot.”
My expertise can help you maintain a reputation for meeting the expectations of a discerning audience. As an independent professional, personally offering you translations from German/French into English, I am the perfect third point in the triangle of writer, translator and customer, because I will make certain that none of the care that has gone into creating a project gets lost. Specialisms include architecture, art, automotive, culinary, music, religion, travel and also MTPE.
