Expertise in Electrical engineering/Electronics

Professional expertise as the key for a reliable translation

The translator’s subject matter expertise plays a special role in the successful rendition of professional texts. Therefore, in addition to the working languages English and French, I focused my studies on developing my knowledge in the technical sciences of electrical engineering and electronics during my certified translator education. The competencies gained enables understanding the customer’s orders to be translated easier and ensures the appropriate terminology research.

Electrical Engineering – a broad field

Numerous areas, from propulsion technology over communication technology and up to process measuring and control technology, have evolved since electricity has been discovered. During my career as a translator, I have worked primarily in the following areas:

  • Fundamentals of  der Electrical Engineering und Electronics
  • Propulsion Technology
  • Energy Technology
  • Information-and Communication technology
  • Automation Technology
  • Electronic Building Components
  • Electronic Equipment Technology
  • High Frequency Electronics

Furthermore, specific knowledge and practical experience are available in the areas of energy technology, automation and robotics (CNC machine tools).

The know-how migrates around the globe

George Westinghouse, Thomas Alva Edison and Werner von Siemens started the movement of systematic development in electrical engineering and its practical application in the mid-19th century. Almost 100 years later, the development of high-performance electronic technology spread from Silicon Valley, California around the globe. Today, almost half of all electronic products are manufactured in South-East Asia. Although the developers almost exclusively communicate in English in this day and age, the need for native tongue maintenance instructions for equipment users and handbooks for end users still remains intact.
