Get your message across

Clear and accurate translations of your website, marketing material and menus give them all the information they need and the feeling that you really care about them.

Make your German guests feel safe and connected by adapting your message to the reader.
Avoid misunderstandings and make sure your texts resonate with them.


Enhance the guest experience

Offer a seamless experience for your German-speaking guests, from their first Google search to your website, all throughout their visit and beyond.
This builds trust and will make them want to come back and bring their friends.

By highlighting your eco-friendly initiatives and efforts towards a more sustainable tourism, you will attract guests who are happy to support hotels and restaurants that care for the planet.

Why work with me?


I believe that responsible tourism supports the local economy in a sustainable way, celebrating the beauty of nature while offering relaxation and enjoyment to the guests.


With my cultural and language expertise, I support destinations, hotels and restaurants so they can make a lasting impact by creating meaningful connections that go beyond language barriers.

Readable, relatable and reliable

A translation must be accurate in the sense that it conveys the intended meaning in the target language.


But to really attract and delight the reader, it should not be a word-for-word translation. Especially not one that sounds automatic.


For marketing material, a transcreation is the better option: Change whatever is needed to evoke the same feelings in German readers. Sometimes, that means leaving out or adding things.


You can be sure I always do that with your best interest in mind and I will let you know exactly what I changed and why.

"For the reopening of our Persian restaurant in Heidelberg, we needed our new menu translated into English at short notice. The task was not easy, as the menu contains a poem. Ms Scales completed the translation quickly and to our complete satisfaction, so that we still had enough time for printing. Her targeted queries showed that she really thinks things through. The cooperation was thoroughly pleasant and I am very happy to recommend her."


Shooresh Fezoni, Restaurant Darwisch



I love researching and learning new things. This is why I translate and write about a variety of topics. But three central themes come up time and again: food, travel, and nature.



I take your English copy and turn it into equally compelling German, adapting where necessary.


Some of the types of content I translate:

  • website copy
  • marketing material (online and print)
  • guest information and directories for hotels
  • restaurant menus and allergen lists
  • brochures and guidebooks



Sometimes, your German readers need other information than the English ones. Or you might notice there is something missing on your website, for example an update on your sustainability efforts. As a bilingual copywriter, I can help you out in both languages.


Here are some of my favourite forms of content writing:

  • website copy
  • blog posts about food, travel and sustainability
  • product descriptions for all things food and cooking


How to work with me

How to work with me

I listen to you, ask the right questions and write a text that achieves your goal.


Sounds simple?
It is, if you know exactly what you want to say, who should read it and what your intended outcome is.
If not, I will walk you through until we are both clear on the target group and approach.

Side note

I have a master's degree in cultural awareness.


Well, actually the programme is called "Cultural Anthropology and European Ethnology", and I added history and sociology to the mix. But what it has taught me first and foremost is that people perceive things differently depending on their cultural background.


If you want your message to resonate with readers from another country, make sure you don't just translate the words, but adapt it to their way of thinking. I can help you with that.
