About us    

Maureen: Born in Scotland, my interest for foreign languages took me to Germany, where I found myself at home with the guttural sounds of the language which are very easy for Scottish people to master. I studied English and German literature at Hamburg University. After initially teaching in adult education, I became a translator and editor.

Jürgen: Born in Germany, my interest in the English culture led me to study English and German literature at Hamburg University, as well as gain an IHK translator certification. More than 30 years of business experience in the international film industry have been a fertile breeding ground for my work as an English/German translator.

By handling each text as a two-person team, we guarantee a native speaker level of quality, both in the understanding of the source text and the transfer into the target language, simultaneously including a review and verification pass in the process.

Our clients include international businesses, advertising agencies, film and TV production companies.
