CTP certified translator

Hello! My name is Julia, I'm thirty-eight years old and am a hard-working, proud mother of an amazing fourteen-year-old boy. I'm a translator and writer by heart. I love to regularly think of German - English and English - German translations and am always catching myself translating every sentence I hear into the other language in my mind -- whether it's a movie I'm watching, or a conversation in which I am engaged. Over the past eight years, I also have been the unofficial German to English and English to German translator at work while performing the regular duties of my job, including protecting and serving. I have been translating countless statements and military documents on request over the years. I'm a self-taught expert and very experienced in the German and US law. I hope you will give me the opportunity to translate a website, app, essay, article, documents, contracts, user manuals, excerpts -- or even a book. Currently, I finally have time to work on such projects since I recently retired and spend my days awaiting my son returning from school. What are my personal traits, you might ask? I'm very honest, dedicated, persistent -- needless to say, very hard-headed with the mind of getting the job done -- hard-working, and a perfectionist. If you seek the best in translation whether it's from German into English or English into German, you will be satisfied. Cheers!
