Languages in motion – Motion in languages

Andrea Brockes

THE ALTERNATIVE

Welcome – I invite you to find out more about me and my translation service. Languages in motion – Motion in languages – the slogan reflects vividness and stands for those facets characterising highly qualified translation – thus The alternative to mediators between languages who speak and know languages, but are not aware that translation is something that has to be learned.I would like to show you that it does make very much of a difference to whom you entrust your texts. One’s training and professional code of ethics play a great role in this. Many factors have to be taken into account when translating a text into another language. Here below you will find out more about my guidelines and my conception of my work. If you should be interested in further information, please just send me a message using the contact form or give me a call! I look forward to your interest and to possibly working together with you!
