sauerkraut 

Basically, I do all work around office and language, but as a multi-lingual secretary and transcriber both certified by Chamber of Commerce Cologne, I'm focusing on transcriptions and translations. Besides common material and multi-lingual conferences, I also transcribe poor quality material and group discussions in my working languages. And I'm an author using the magic of words. To ensure quality, all work is reviewed by native speakers before delivery. My most beloved work is to transliterate gothic writing in today's characters. If you have old documents of any kind of your ancestors and you cannot read them, I'd love to assist you.
