Testimonials and sample translations


This is what clients have said of my work:

Clay Johnson has a demonstrated mastery of the German language. During his MA program at the Institute for Latin American Studies of the Freie Universität Berlin, he was able to gain in-depth insight into and conduct his own research in the social sciences, including for example sociology, economics, politics and literary studies. His particular training and language abilities are felt on all levels of his translation work. In the texts that he has translated for me, he has shown that he can not only translate the complexity of terminology from German social theory into English, but can also create a flowing text. My experience shows: Clay Johnson’s translations are reliable and excellent.

Since 2014, Clay Johnson has translated form Spanish and German into English several articles of mine and colleagues in the field of humanities and social sciences. The results have been excellent both in terms of quality and concerning his punctuality and reliability. He is also an outstanding proofreader.
