As a native German speaker working professionally with languages, I can answer questions concerning German grammar, spelling and punctuation. I can also help with understanding and short German-English translations. As I also speak French, I might also be helpful concerning German-French translations. Translation only refers to short texts here.
I am a German native speaker working as a translator for English and French. I am concerned with language issues as grammar and spelling on a daily basis. I am very interested in these kind of topics, as any good translator should be. I also have a very good insight in the differences between English and German (and also French), so I might be able to give helpful explanations why specific things are the way they are in a specific language.
I am a member of the German Translator Association BDÜ.
My translations are published in form of manuals, company and product presentations, and websites, but you won't find my name there, as translators of technical texts are only rarely featured.
I studied translation at the University of Applied Sciences in Cologne (FH Köln), and have been working as a freelance translator for five years now.
I haven't received any awards, but receiving awards is really quite rare for translators.
Mostly translation agencies in many different countries.
It is my native language, and I hope to help as many people as possible to understand and/or learn it.

Hello Helen, thank you for your question. The origin of this quote is the 1981 Hollywood movie Raiders of the Lost Ark. It is just a way of one of the characters to snarkily address one of the villains
Hello Ashley, thank you for your question. Yes, "Charly" and "Charlie" are pronounced the same way. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any data on when the name was introduced, but I looked for Germans
Hello Mark, thank you for your question. Albrecht and Albert are both names that have a common origin in the ancient name Adalbert. So, they are not really different ways of spelling the same name
Hello Joel, thank you for your question. I am sorry that I took a while for replying. The fact that "it" has several translations in German is due to the fact that German nouns can have one of three
Hello Sara, thank you for your question. I had never heard of the word "Gruscht" or "Kruscht" before reading your question. So I did some research for Swabian dialect, and I was able to find it. Indeed
