Julia Fuchs – Translator

I'm a professional English to German translator with 20 years of experience, focusing on cosy mysteries and family novels.

Overview

Hey there, I’m Julia. I’m a literary translator from Germany with a university degree in translation and over twenty years of experience as a full-time freelance translator. I mainly translate English cosy mysteries and family novels into German, plus the related marketing material (if required) and I also offer translation assessment, editing and proofreading services.


My approach? Translating ideas! Because in the end it’s all about what’s behind the words, about telling a great story that your audience will love. I'm passionate about creating flawless, compelling translations that are true to the original and read like an original, and I can provide you with a publication-ready German version of your book.


My professional background? I've been focusing on the translation of literary works since early 2021. Before that I mainly translated marketing and medical texts. I’ve completed quite a few cozy mysteries, two magical paranormal fantasy books and some psychological family dramas.


My personal interests? I love roaming the nearby woods and fields with my two dogs, listening to audio books, cooking vegan, going on trips with my camper and dreaming of living in a tiny house. Besides, I’m also a huge fan of photography and graphic design.


Interested in working with me? I’d love to hear from you and would be happy to help you win many new readers.


Many thanks for your interest,

Julia

This was my second time working with Julia on a German translation of a paranormal cozy mystery. I was struck once again by Julia's professionalism, adherence to deadlines, and clear communication. Any time I needed reassurance she was there to provide it and she clearly explained the reasons for certain choices she was making. Julia went above and beyond in providing me with a few extras that ...

We required Julia to translate not just words but also nuance in meaning and overall story flow in order to ensure our stories transfer well between language and culture. J...

I'm thrilled that I found Julia to collaborate with on the translation of my paranormal cozy mystery series. She is enthusiastic and full of great ideas. Her communication has been brilliant and she is realistic about time constraints etc. She goes over and above what I had expected and I am truly grateful for her professionalism and commitment. I look forward to working with her again.
