I selected Claudia to work as an editorial lead on this project because she had already proven herself to be a sharp-eyed editor with a flair for following client briefs on previous projects. Once in the editorial lead role, she also showed herself to be an excellent team player and communicator. She went out of her way to help the team produce high-quality work and was constantly looking to improve the overall functioning of the project.
I have worked with Claudia for over a year on a global lifestyle content programme for a large insurance provider, on which she has been a strategist and editor for the German market. She is a very knowledgeable, very reliable partner, who takes immense pride in the quality of her work. She has not only helped us to build a bank of skilled writers but has been instrumental in client communications and streamlining processes. Thanks, Claudia!
It is my pleasure to recommend to you Claudia Voit who completed marketing translations for the Public Relations/Human Resources sectors. Claudia is reliable, prompt and has strong writing skills. Her work exceeded client expectations, and we are pleased to recommend Claudia to anyone looking for a professional translator.
Claudia worked on some very high-level English to German translation projects for a global technology business through our agency. The end client was delighted with Claudia’s work. She translated a lengthy marketing brochure perfectly, with no revisions needed at all. She is a top-quality translator and transcreator.
From our very first project together, Claudia showed she is an intelligent, talented and responsible person who can handle various projects and always delivers translations of outstanding quality. She was so polite and respectful and also very clear on her strengths and how she could help us.
I’ve felt confident working with Claudia over this past year because I know she does everything in the best possible way. She leaves nothing to chance; she researches, asks questions and delivers every task before the deadline. On top of that, she’s extremely organized, communicates wonderfully, and honestly, if you’re looking to get your content in the best possible hands for the German market, I wouldn’t recommend anyone else. She’s a lovely woman who’s always open to collaborating and places quality above all else! Working with her is simply amazing!
I have known Claudia in the capacities of translator, transcreator and editor since December 2017. We have been collaborating in various freelance roles (fashion, online marketing); she also assisted me with a translation project for a direct client in 2018 (tourism, geology). Claudia always backs up her excellent language skills (English, German) with thorough research, which produces accurate as well as beautifully written texts. In addition, she is extremely reliable and responsive, always happy to help other team members, and therefore always contributes to the success of all projects on many levels. I can recommend her services as a linguist and consultant without hesitation.
Claudia went above and beyond when I asked her to edit the German version of my website. Not only did she do a great job at the editing, she also gave me invaluable tips on website improvements and inspired me to make some changes to the English version of my website too. I cannot recommend her enough!
Working with Claudia is a delight! She is very focused and thorough, follows all project-specific guidelines and rules and always delivers work that is of the highest standards. Thanks to her can-do attitude and approachability, nothing is ever a bother for Claudia and she is an asset to any team!
Claudia Voit translated a non-fiction book for us together with a colleague. She rendered the rather heavy tone of the book into clear, elegant and varied sentences. She also simplified complex connections and ultimately delivered a wonderfully precise and readable text. The final translation was incredibly clear and accurate – simply excellent.
