The beauty of sports and the impact of words

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And sport definitely has its beautiful moments. Sport is much more than just the result on the scoreboard or a list of statistics. There is an intrinsic beauty in a slick curve ball; a slow, aesthetically executed Tai Chi movement; a powerful top-spin backhand or a masterful pirouette on the skating rink.

Language also has its own beauty. Language enables us to express and share our thoughts and feelings and reflects our culture. Language is the ultimate communication tool. But the spoken and visual symbols used by humans are not a perfect form of communication: there is plenty of scope for ambiguity and misinterpretation.

Before you can excel in a sport, you need to master the sports equipment whether it is a ball, racket, puck or bicycle. The same applies to languages ​​and their translation. You have to know a language inside out to get your message across and not be misinterpreted. If you want to write about sports in another language, it is essential to have an optimal knowledge of the source and target languages. But it is equally important to understand what you are writing about. So you need to be a specialist in both regards – a skilled, experienced translator and a sports expert. Welcome to my website – you have just found someone with this elusive combination!

It's all about the right technique

Just imagine a heart-stopping Alpine descent on a racing bike, the well-rehearsed manoeuvres of a bobsleigh team or the complex sequence of movements of a triple jumper. Get the technique right and success will follow. Just as you rely on your ski bindings during a white-knuckle downhill or trust your breathing regulator as you explore a majestic labyrinth of coral reef, you can rely on us! We use the most up-to-date translation tools, online databases, specialized dictionaries, translation memories and quality assurance tools to ensure the highest quality of translation to meet and often exceed your expectations. And this applies whether your text is technical documentation, the rules of the game, a contract, event marketing, a blog, press release or magazine article, and whoever you are – a club, association, athlete, sports equipment manufacturer, publisher, audio-visual production company, agency, etc. The famous sports motto is our motto:
There's no such thing as ‘can't be done’.

Right from the start...

If you are building up a racing bike, would you buy a frame, gears, brakes, wheels, saddle, handlebars, crankset and chain from eight different dealers, relying on the advice of eight different “experts”? That would be incredibly complicated, wouldn’t it?
Wouldn’t you prefer to visit a one-stop shop, receive everything from a single source and benefit from carefully tailored advice?!
Submit a text to us for translation and, within a few minutes, you will receive an offer, setting out the exact final price and the delivery date. So, even before placing the order, you can schedule the next stage of your activities and budget the cost of the service. the finish line

Just as the sailing skipper relies on the helm and navigator, and the Formula 1 driver relies on the race engineer and pit crew, so you can count on us. Punctual delivery and the highest quality are in our common interests, and this approach unites us from start to finish and beyond. We are always there for you, before, during and even after your translation project. You may have questions, changed requirements or need additional services. We are flexible enough to respond to all eventualities!

Overcoming obstacles - together!

What if there are problems or ambiguities? Don’t worry! We are always there for you. Thanks to our many years of experience, we can eliminate obstacles, combining our efforts with you to work as a team. Just talk to us! Communication is a vital component of every sport; it is what makes a team click. Let’s work together for joint success.

About me

I'm 50 years old, I grew up in North Rhine-Westphalia as the son of two sports teachers and have practiced many different kinds of sports throughout my life. As a child, I played table tennis, did regular gymnastics and was in a swimming club for over 10 years. Then my dad kindled my passion for handball. As I was a good swimmer and had learned the intricacies of handball, the next combination was obvious: water polo! As my father was a ski instructor too, we always spent the winter holidays in the Alps, so I can claim to be a passable skier. To work on explosive sprinting, I also liked to play squash, an extremely dynamic and complex sport that challenges both body and mind. During my studies at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz I ran volleyball training sessions and learned to play tennis, the latter unfortunately with only moderate success. But for over two decades now, soccer has been my true passion! When my children were young, the local sports club was looking for a soccer coach. As I had already gained some experience as a youth coach, I took on the role. In order to carry out the task professionally and meet the expectations of the club and its enthusiastic young players, I gradually acquired several coaching licences - so far up to UEFA B level. My passion led me to the highest German league for under-15 players, the German Regionalliga. Currently, I coach a men's team and do a little CrossFit training and bodybuilding to keep in shape.
While I may not have reached the highest professional levels in these sports, as you can see, I have a very broad sports experience, meaning that I have an in-depth knowledge of the rules and specific features of most sports. Together with my many journeys abroad and qualifications as a linguist and translator, this puts me in a perfect position to fulfil all your requirements in the field of professional sports translation!
