Header Proofreading v2 


Editing & proofreading (German & English)

The final polish for your work


It’s often difficult enough to compose a text. A typo might sneak into the text, or maybe a comma will slip to the wrong place. The author in particular might have a tough time spotting those errors because he or she’s too familiar with the text. Here, it’s worth having a second pair of eyes at your disposal. I will gladly help you with my basic proofreading services to fix orthographic or grammar mistakes.

Moreover, it matters that a text should be easy to understand and convincing in its phrasing. Many documents benefit from more suitable wording and a better reading flow. That is, of course, especially true for those in another language. With my editing services, I ensure that your work will be pleasant and appropriate to read.

Should you want a novel or a non-fiction book to be polished to perfection, I will happily take care of that. Here, my goal is e.g. to keep the characterization consistent or to ensure a logical argumentation. I will help you maintain the tension and keep the reader’s interest locked in.

Examples for editing and proofreading work that I have done:
• Scientific documents (e.g. doctoral theses, articles for expert magazines)
• Political texts (e.g. press releases, conference summaries, calls for action) – national and EU level
• Advertising copy (ads, posters, flyers, brochures)

 

Header Translation v2 


Translations English <-> German

The bridge between languages and cultures


Any language has its idiosyncrasies – and pitfalls. A classic trap are words in one language that sound the same but mean different things (e.g. the German “Schloss” meaning a lock or a castle). Equally problematic are the so-called “false friends” – here, the words take on a different meaning in the other language, and you're tempted to think they should be the same (e.g. a “beamer” in German isn’t a BMW but a projector). Culture also offers plenty of opportunities for misunderstanding.

I translate your texts to English or German with native speaker competency and excellent knowledge of the different (language) cultures. Here, I make sure that the tone of the original is maintained. Your text will also be appealing and easy to understand in the new language.

From articles in expert magazines over business presentations to non-fiction books or novels, I’m happy to take care of your document. With more than ten years of experience in all of these areas, I have been working both with comparatively small companies and well-known international enterprises.

Header AboutMe v2 

 

Marc Hertel


By now, I’ve been working for more than 10 years as a freelance translator and editor. My love for English and German – as well as for languages in general is at the heart of my endeavor. On the one hand, I very much enjoy working with languages; on the other, I also learned how much I relish helping others reach their goals. Whether it's a short term paper for a student, an important presentation for a manager or an entire book: Being there for others and helping them is a joy in itself for me.

In the course of my work, I’ve assisted a great number of diverse people, in various fields and stages of life. Among others, I have edited scientific works, such as doctoral theses or articles for expert magazines. Moreover, I have proofread advertising copy for various agencies which are regular customers. I have to admit, there is a certain fascination in following the development of a company through its advertisements – especially one located in a region far away from oneself.

I have produced translations for well-known international companies, in different fields. These include reports on market research, presentations, scientific works as well as advertising texts and product descriptions.

Furthermore, I am proud to have been active for several scientific and political projects both on the national and the EU level. It is particularly the continuous collaboration with political actors that I have found to be of great personal interest.
