Katharina helped me understand the nuances in the culture of the people she was translating. It gave me a real understanding of the market we were exploring, and our client was thrilled with the insights we managed to source. All thanks to Katharina’s great work.

Katharina has the incredible ability to be very personable while ensuring that the work is completed in an efficient and professional way. Katharina’s great at working to tight deadlines while remaining very precise in her translations. While other translators let us down with inaccurate timecodes or translations Katharina always gave us great translations and guidelines, we knew we could trust.
