Translations (Transcreation) ENG - DEU

Spectra Agency (Prague, CZ) • Casual / On-call

Jan 2019 - Present

I am helping on-call with transcreations (more than translation) from ENG to DEU for the German speaking D/A/CH market. This way the translated text is without any obstacles for German mother tongue readers. The texts sell much better than stupid translations.
I also proofread texts. For example prepress PDF documents or mailings. To make sure, that te texts for mass mailings, company brochures or advertising campaigns will be without mistakes.
As a typographer, I am used to understand prepress artworks and I am able to do quality checks (design, colours, tone of voice etc.).
