Who we are, what we do, and what drives us

Who we are
We are spouses who together earned our undergraduate degree in linguistics and psychology. During our studies, each of us identified specific skillsets, and we learned that pooling our resources leads to improved results. We applied the same methodology throughout our postgraduate studies in neuropsychology, and continue this trend for our work as freelancers as well as independent contractors. Our advantage is working as a team and thinking critically.

What we do
We improve your written communication! It is vital to us that the target audience understands your message. At the same time, it is equally important that you, as the client, know what it is you want to communicate. We analyse and edit the source for grammatical as well as factual errors; plus, we translate and proofread from German to English and vice versa. Our background as academics permits us to research and familiarise ourselves with a variety of topics as needed. As psychologists, we apply scientific standards to all of our projects and combine them with our understanding that language is context-dependent. By using this accumulated knowledge, we turn complex content into short texts and translations that are easy to understand, free of errors, and delights your readers with a natural flow.

What drives us
We are scientists! Our approach to work as linguists is evidence based. We are aware that language is elaborate and ever-evolving. Both of us are notorious problem solvers. Because of this, we have developed workflows that permit us to create objectively measurable results that satisfy even our picky minds. We are not interested in blindly adhering to currently practised conventions but in defining and establishing improved standards that guide writers to become better communicators. Our work processes undergo continuous evaluation, and we do not hesitate to scrutinise our work if it does not meet our criteria. It is our passion for concise and immaculate language, as well as the ability to take ownership of our work, that drive us to perfection.
