English is the first or second official language of almost 100 countries. Plus, English is an official working language of the EU and the United Nations. As such, professional translators and interpreters for English (into German and many other languages) are in high demand.
Varieties of English
As British and American English are well known as having some significant lexical, orthographic and occasionally even grammatical differences that should certainly be taken into account for any successful translation, the translator should be made aware of which English-speaking target area the text is intended for with all translations into English from German or other languages. For translations out of English, it also makes the work much easier if the translator knows which cultural sphere the text being translated comes from, particularly for researching i.e. German terminology.

Qualified English translators
We guarantee consistently high quality by complying with strict qualification criteria when selecting our English translators and by adhering to the Four Eyes principle. Our highly qualified translators have excellent knowledge of their source and target languages. On top of that, our translators are also well versed in the terminology and linguistic conventions of their specialist field.
All translations are subject to a three-stage quality check. After the translator has completed the translation, it is compared with the source text by a skilled revisor and checked to ensure it is complete, grammatically correct, stylistically appropriate and that the terminology is consistent. Before being delivered to the client, the translation is checked once more by a project manager to ensure it is complete and that the translator and proofreaders have followed all of the project specifications.
Sworn Translations English ↔ German
Of course, Translation Agency Vienna | Connect Translations Austria also offers English ↔ German sworn translations. Sworn translations into German are carried out by Austrian court interpreters. As the court interpreter has to confirm the exact correspondence of the translation with the original through a certification form, their signature and a round seal, there will be no proofreading by a second translator. The costs for sworn translations are calculated according to the number of lines in the target language.
Translator English – Costs
The costs for specialist translations into and out of English are calculated based on the number of words in the source language. Our prices are always flat rate prices with no ifs and no buts. For larger translation projects in which many sections of text are repeated or for which consistent terminology is paramount, we use CAT tools with which we can increase work speeds by up to 50%. On top of this, cost reductions of up to 70% are also possible in many cases. Further information on this can be found here.
Interpreter English ↔ German
The English simultaneous interpreters (conference interpreters) and consecutive interpreters (escort interpreters and liaison interpreters) of our interpreting agency in Vienna do not only interpret from English but also from and into other languages. For example, the working languages of our qualified English interpreters include Arabic, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Dutch (Hollandic and Flemish), French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Slovakian, Slovenian and Spanish.
English Interpreters – Costs
The price for interpreting assignments usually comprises several components. In addition to the fee for the interpreters in some cases there will also be travel expenses, accommodation and food costs and – in the event of longer journeys – compensation for time spent travelling. For short assignments (e.g. interpreting for the signing of a contract at a notary’s or lawyer’s office), a minimum fixed price will be applied to cover all of the components. For simultaneous interpreting, the interpreters always work in teams of two. You can find more information about the prices for our interpreting services here.
