Advantages of professional translation

It is true that there are very good time-saving translation tools available today. However, so-called machine translation will never completely replace human translation. Software does not pick up all the linguistic, emotional and cultural subtleties. A good translator can transcribe them into his or her first language.

Thanks to my extensive professional and intercultural experience, I am able to deliver quality translations on time, directly from German into French, without any intermediate translation.
