Legal Translation: A Useful Local Resource

I have just received the following post from Nadine Lamprecht, an ambitious and adaptable German linguist with expertise in interpreting and translation (specialsing in legal, economic and technical texts); five years of translation and interpreting studies in Germany in English, French and Spanish.

Ladies and Gentlemen

My name is Nadine Lamprecht. I have just finished my Master´s course for interpreting and translation at the Universiy of Bradford.

I am a German native speaker and have studied translation and interpreting for English and French.  During my undergraduate studies in Germany I specialised in legal, financial and business translation and during my postgraduate course at the University of Bradford I managed to gather experience in dealing with medical, technical and political translations. Furthermore, this course enabled me to get very good training as a conference interpreter for English and German.

I finished my undergraduate studies in Germany as a state-registered translator for English and French and will soon conclude my MA in interpreting and translation.

In the course of my studies, I have done some freelance work for accounting companies in Germany, individuals (translation of CVs, certificates ect.) as well as a placement with the Centre Virtuel de la Connaissance de l´Europe in Luxembourg, which is the archive of the European Union.  

With my course nearly finished now, I have decided to set up my own business as a freelance interpreter/translator and was fortunate enough to gain a place in the business support programme of the University, ThinkBusiness. I currently live in Bradford but am flexible and able to accept jobs all over the country or on the continent.

Apart from translation (English and French into German) and interpreting (English into German for simultaneous, consecutive and liaison interpreting), I also offer tuition for students of the German language and various administrative and commercial correspondence services for companies doing business with Germany and France.

I charge translation by the word, and interpreting, language tuition and other assistance services on an hourly basis. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I would be glad to hear from you and work with you in the near future.

Thank you very much.

Kind Regards

Nadine Lamprecht
