Although our team of translators is spread out over many different time zones, from California and New York City to London and Berlin, with few exceptions, we know them all personally and have worked with them for many years. We only work with the best – our language professionals are native speakers of their target language and trained professional translators.
We all take the time to get to know your organization and your needs. Whether you have a quick question about English grammar, or you need us to manage a large project: you will find us easygoing and happy to help. It’s like having your own in-house team!
Pleased to meet you…
… both as a freelancer and in a translation agency – Trisha has decades of experience and knows the translation market inside and out. Because of the growing demand for key-account language service providers in the corporate sector, in 2008 the native New Yorker decided to set up a new and comprehensive center of excellence for the German/English market. Launched in her home in Manhattan, Young Translations is now mainly run from Vienna. The members on the team work in many different time zones, from California and NYC to London and Berlin.
