is a specialist German-to-English translation service based in the Inner West suburb of Glebe in Sydney, Australia, boasting 20 years' experience in the provision of translations for a huge range of clients, both at home and abroad.

Unlike most translation agencies, German Translation Online only offers language services into and out of two languages, German and English. In quality assurance terms this means that every single translated document can be checked, proof-read and (if required) edited by its dual-accredited, bilingual proprietor and project manager, Michael Grunwald.

A native English speaker with both Australian (NAATI) and German (IHK) translation accreditation and 30 years' translation experience in both Germany and Australia, he is ideally qualified not only to help assess your translation needs, but also to ensure the ultimate consistency and quality of the finished translation product. 

As a client of German Translation Online you benefit from the insight and experience accrued by Michael during 14 years working as a translator/trainer in Germany and in his former role as the NSW Professional Development Coordinator and state committee member for AUSIT, Australia's peak translating and interpreting professional association. Michael is also a credentialed teacher of English as a foreign language to adults and a tutor at the University of Sydney Business School.

A recent client comment

Michael – ausgezeichnete Arbeit. Many thanks – what a pleasure to read natural sounding English target texts that don’t sound like a translation. Fab work! (October 2018)
