Translation, Transcreation & Localization (German-English)
Please specify whether the target language should be British or American English. The PHIFER Group specializes in the following topics of translation, transcreation and localization:
Tourism & Travel
General Marketing & Ecommerce
- Translation, German to English: €0.10-0.199 | appx. €40-60 per hour
- Transcreation, German to English: €0.05-0.12 | appx. €35-45 per hour

Not sure which of the above is suitable for your needs?
Translation is very direct and most always used for documents in the areas of business, legalities and politics.
Transcreation is best when a friendly or casual tone is required, which includes the use of idioms, call-to-actions and other creative devices. It’s most often employed for product descriptions as well as travel and tourism texts.
Localization requires thorough research, and is written with more depth than a simple legal document or product description. An example of a localized text would be an article about selling on Amazon — which has been localized from the .de market to the .com market with its different regulations (also requiring new screenshots, currency conversion from EUR to USD, etc.).
