Rolf Rhodes - Translator

Munich, Germany

An author myself, I understand the importance of conveying the feeling of a text in translation over and above its literal meaning.

I studied English, German, and Classical literature at the University of Cape Town where I gained my first experience translating texts from German to English and vice versa, either freehandedly or by using CAT-tools. I have distinctions in Classical and German literature, and German and English are both native tongues to me, with an English speaking father and German speaking mother.

The extent of my professional experience includes the translation of the Terms and Conditions of the marketing firm GSDH from German to English.

I you are unsure whether or not I am the right person for the job I would be happy to translate your work for free. Payment due only once you are completely satisfied with the work that I have done.
