Originally from Germany, I have spent the last 4 years working and living abroad, improving and building upon my language skills. Graduated with a Master's Degree in Automotive Engineering, I have more than 3 years post-graduate experience in the mechanical engineering industry. I am highly specialized in technical translation, especially for the automotive & engineering business and can guarantee excellent written content for a better & smoother readers’ experience as well as deadline commitment.
Ever since I began working as a freelance translator, I participated in diverse translation projects such as:
• website localization
• Amazon product listings
• Shopify store localization
• marketing material, brochures, manuals
• software and mobile application localization, incl. mobile gaming apps
• technical & scientific translations, especially for the automotive industry.
As a freelance translator with educational background in IT and physics, I can offer translations specifically in those areas. I've been working as a freelance translator for about two years now and I was able to gather experience in post-MT translation, translation and subtitling. As an active gamer and musician, I am also interested in jobs concerning those areas.

Growing up biculturally (I’m German but I grew up in Turkey), I have learned 3 languages (German, Turkish & English) like my mother tongue and I have been involved with translation for many years. On top of it, I did a bachelor in Translation Studies at Istanbul University. I love languages, and translation has an inevitable place in my life. I do professional verbal and written translations and I am a multiskilled and reliable translator with the ability to handle problems of the translation process along with excellent negotiation skills. I wish to gain more experience and improve myself continuously.
My name is Claudia Heidemann (company name ch_translations) and I am a translator for the languages German, English, Dutch and Latin. Since I am a native German speaker and as I study Bachelor Electrical Engineering in English (and have been speaking English on a daily basis much earlier) I feel very comfortable in both languages and in translating between them. I started as a freelance translator on the freelancer's website Fiverr (link to my profile there: https://www.fiverr.com/ch_translations) and I have completed over 200 projects there so far with an average rating of 4.95/5. Since summer 2016 I was mostly working on projects that I got in touch with via ProZ. I also work with SDL Trados 2014 and recently discovered as well used other CAT tools like MateCat, SmartCAT, Google Translator Kit and Smartling. I have gained most of my experience by translating websites, (technical) manuals, apps and promotional brochures/videos. In this time, so that I am familiar with translating texts in this field. My capacity per day, depending on the source document, can be up to 2000 words for translating and up to 5000 words for editing as well as proofreading. My rates can be usually negotiated individually depending on the project.
