I am a U.S. citizen, originally from New York City, who grew up in a multi-lingual German & English-speaking environment.
BBA in finance and marketing management from Baruch College (CUNY, NYC).
My post-college work experience began with a two-year stint on Wall Street, during which time I obtained various certifications.
In 1981, I moved to Germany to work for a well-known private bank on their 3-person International Securities desk. Five years later, I accepted an offer to join a newly formed sales department at Bankers Trust in Frankfurt. The position ended in 1989 when several departments were reorganized. Thereafter, I worked for several well-known firms in a variety of sales, trading and research capacities until my return to the United States in 1997.
During my years in Germany, I attended a wide variety of specialist seminars and conferences, all of which were held in German. I was almost always the only non-German participant. The seminars were in the areas of banking, securities, investment, IT/software/hardware and photography (i.e. composition, darkroom techniques).
In Germany, I also worked at a number of trade shows including Photokina (Photographics), the Eisenwarenmesse (Hardware) and the Schmuckmesse (Jewelry).
I’ve been living and translating in Jacksonville, Florida since 1997. I founded this website www.translategerman.com in March 1998.
Member of the American Translators Association.
It goes without saying that my translations – and my clients – benefit from my having lived and worked for decades in both the United States and Germany.

CONFLICT OF INTEREST POLICY
As many of my translation projects are for German companies or pertain to companies in German-speaking countries, I am aware of my responsibility to remain impartial in all regards. Should there be an extraordinary situation where I discover there is or may potentially be a conflict of interest, I will disclose this promptly.
I do not directly own shares or any other type of security or derivative in any specific German, Austrian, Swiss or Luxembourg-based company. I may however hold positions in German or European ETFs or sector ETFs which could include such individual securities or derivatives.
Upon request, I will gladly sign a standard non-disclosure agreement.
