Patrick Calija

translator in Germany


My name is Patrick Calija, I am a native bilingual German and English speaker with over five years of experience in delivering translation services.

I hold an associate degree in banking/finance, verified by a state exam in front of the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce. Over the past years, I have worked as a language specialist in various roles for major companies including BMW, AVG, Bosch and Pfizer, as well as for the Official Journal of the European Union, and international organizations, such as the European Commission. While working on financial subject matter is my speciality, my experience ranges across a range of different subject areas.

While translating, I place a primary focus on creating a natural-sounding translation that reads well in the target language while reflecting the core message and tone of the source.

I use the industry-leading CAT Tool SDL Trados Studio, and undertake manual research into technical terms and abbreviations to ensure contextual accuracy and precision.

All your translations will be delivered in the same formatting as the original that you send me (including hyperlinks, images etc.)

Kind regards,

Patrick Calija
