Getting your bearings
What ATS can offer you
If you need a translation to be done and it has to be
done well, then you'll need a professional linguist to help you ...
- someone who speaks the target language perfectly (and
is highly proficient at writing it as well)
- someone who's familiar with the subject matter
- ... and someone who also knows what style to use to
address your audience appropriately (just like the person who wrote the
This is where Amper Translation Service comes in handy.
ATS is a translation and proof-reading agency based near Munich in South Germany and has an international network of professional translators and
editors at its disposal, all of whom translate texts into their mother
is on editing texts
written in English and on
German into English and English
into German. We also translate into several other
European languages (see
the Languages page).
Having worked in the translation industry for a number
of years, my colleagues and I are all familiar with a broad range of subjects. Each
member of my team of freelance translators also has specialist knowledge
of at least one of the
fields ATS covers, and you can be sure translators with a good
understanding of your particular field will always get assigned to your
It's this combination of knowledge and skills that
enables ATS to produce high-quality translations and well-edited texts.

At ATS, you'll find I put a lot of emphasis on
competent, friendly service, quality and transparency. You can learn
more about these aspects of our work and get to know us by clicking on About ATS.
A special service I offer in addition to translation is
described in the section on Editing.
This service is intended for companies, publishing
houses, academic institutions and research institutes
that wish to get an independent native
speaker to check the foreign-language texts written by their staff
before these are published.
Finally, some general information about the cost of my
language services is provided on the Pricing
page. Please request a quotation if you have a specific assignment in
mind as the rates and turnaround times vary.
Getting in touch with ATS
To get in touch with ATS quickly, you can send me an
e-mail or just give me a call - you'll find the details you need on my Contact page.
This section also includes the firm's postal address,
which you'll need if you want to send me a text for a quotation, a
printed purchase order or a copy of a publication we have
translated for you, for example.
Sending me work to translate
If the text you want to have translated is already
available as an electronic file, please e-mail
it to me or send it to
ATS on a CD-ROM. This will make it much easier for me to measure the
file in question and make you a quote quickly. I can process a variety
of file formats used
on Windows operating systems. File transfer by FTP or other means is
also possible in the case of large files, so please ask about that if
Having a text in an electronic form is also convenient
for my translators, as all they need to do is make a digital copy of
the file and overwrite the copy in their own language.
This is often faster than creating a new document from
scratch and also means the translation will have exactly the same
appearance as the original text.
These factors all serve to increase our turnaround rate
and shorten the length of the project for you.
