  Languages

I translate texts in the language combinations English → German, French → German und Spanish → German: In compliance with the ethics of my profession and to ensure high quality, I only translate into German, which is my first language (native speaker principle). Accordingly, I can guarantee that the texts will sound fluent and natural.

  Types of texts

I translate business and scientific texts as well as sales and marketing texts: reports and analyses, press releases, editorial texts, websites, questionnaires, SEO, social media content, newsletters, questionnaires, corporate guidelines, training documents, business correspondence, white papers, flyers, instructions for use and much more.

Your specialised texts will be edited with high precision: I have worked in science and I know how much the quality of the text depends on correctly translated terminology. My translations convince because they combine expert knowledge and objectivity with a fluent and a clear style. I ensure an accurate and complete translation and you can expect high-quality, factually correct, and consistent results.

I will transform your marketing texts with creativity and finesse: I have been working in the field of marketing and press relations and I know how appropriate targeting works. My words present your company in the right light. Your text will not simply be translated but will also be transformed to your target customers’ and readers’ language, respectively (transcreation). I adapt the wording in a way that it will correspond to the cultural characteristics and national usages of the language (localisation).

  Specialist fields

My fields of expertise include: travel, hospitality and catering industry, industrial production, transportation and traffic, IT und digital payment methods, lifestyle and beauty, pharma and health industry, business and finance, politics, culture and sport. If you don’t find your sector or topic, please feel free to still contact me. As an open-minded person, I have a wide range of interests and quickly familiarize myself with new topics.

  Additional services

In addition to translation services (including transcreation and localization), I also offer proofreading services (including revising and layout):

  CAT-Tools

To be as effective as possible and devote more attention to the subtleties of the language, I work with CAT tools. They speed up my work by giving me suggestions for technical terms and phrases that I have already translated before, and by subsequently exporting the translated document to the desired layout. I work with the following CAT tools: memoQ, SDL Trados Studio, Smartling, XTM.

About me


Your texts in good hands.

Ich bin Heide Niemann.

  By working with me, you will benefit from my broad professional experience.

Prior to working as a freelance translator, I have worked scientifically (traffic psychology) as well as in the commercial sphere (i.e. in marketing and press relations in the catering and hotel industries). I was born and raised in Germany, I lived in the UK and in France, and currently I am based in Spain.

When translating I make use of these professional and cultural experiences. I am an open-minded person with a wide range of interests and I feel comfortable with many socio-political topics at the same time. I translate your text with finesse through the absolute correct use of specialist terms, always keeping your readers or target audience in focus.

  You will receive a high-quality text that corresponds exactly to your ideas.

I am a very good team worker and I feel very much at home in an international environment. Please let me know your special wishes concerning your document. I will aim to publish a text that you are absolutely satisfied with.

I work very accurately and the individual phrases are given all the attention they require. At the same time, my work is very effective. I know the importance of meeting deadlines during the process of production and publishing. Therefore, it is self-evident that I will deliver by the agreed date.

I will also be happy to send you a detailed CV in tabular form by email.
