Since 2000 I have been offering translations from English into German as well as proofreading and editing.

My services include, but are not limited to, the following: quotations, tenders, book reviews, acknowledgements, e-mails, essays, questionnaires, instructions for use, interviews, corrections, manuscripts, marketing research surveys, employee newsletters, presentations, press reports, product information, brochures, quality assurance systems, training material, transcription, websites and newspaper articles.

Sandra Pontow is a Certified Financial Translator. Before opening her office, she lived and worked in the United States for several years.

German is her mother tongue, English her passion.
