Melanie Girdlestone M.A. (BDÜ)

Born and raised bilingually in the UK, I settled in Munich after university, where I launched my career as a translator. I have now been living and working here for over 20 years.

For my two Master’s degrees, I focused on communication strategies in German and English – with a very positive impact on my work today. My customers appreciate the quality, precision and elegance of my work, my keen sense of their identity and concerns, and my speed, reliability and flexibility.

My translations are highly readable, idiomatic and lively, and accurately reflect the tone and content of the original.
