Beth in a few words

I make sure your English-language marketing materials sound as good as they really should. As a native English speaker who has more than 10 years of experience in content development for American and European media companies and startups, I can create copy that connects with consumers, marketers and investors. I have particular experience in copy that has been roughly translated from German and French.

Ich stelle sicher, dass Ihr englischsprachiger Text so liest, wie er wirklich gelesen werden sollte. Mit Englisch als Muttersprache und mit mehr als 10 Jahren Erfahrung in der Inhsaltswicklung für amerikanische und europäische Medienunternehmen und Startups verfügt, kann ich Text schnell erstellen, die bei Verbrauchern, Vermarktern und Investoren ansprechen. Besondere Erfahrung habe ich mit Inhalten, die grob aus dem Deutschen und Französischen übersetzt wurden.
