Rebecca Rosenthal

Independent Writer and Translator for German, English and Chinese

Focus: Copywriting, Transcreation and Creative Translation
Specialization: Marketing for the Lifestyle Industry


Since 2012 I have been working as a freelance writer and translator. I have been working for big multinationals, such as L’Oréal, Hèrmes, Swarovski, Frasers Hospitality, Philips, Bayer and GSK on various projects, including translations, interpreting, copywriting, multilingual graphic layout, as well as video subtitling. During my employment as a project manager at the Shanghai office of the multinational translation agency Eurologos which is headquartered in Brussels, I gained valuable experience in the industry.

The linguistic and cultural know-how in my working languages were not only acquired during long-term study and work stays in the US and China, but also through a well-rounded academic education, as I learned my craft from the bottom up, mainly at:

  • Göttingen University in Germany (Double Degree M.A. Intercultural German Studies Germany-China)
  • Nanjing University in China (Double Degree M.A. Intercultural German Studies Germany-China)
  • the biggest training center worldwide for translators and interpreters at Mainz University in Germany (B.A. Applied Linguistics, Cultural Studies, Translation and Interpreting).

I topped up my translation skills for English and Chinese with a master in German studies and thus perfected my expressive competence, which is naturally important in my profession. Growing up in Berlin taught me the most popular slang in Germany.


Your website, an important brochure, your personal slogan, a suitable name for your newest product, the company newsletter...

Why should you entrust me with your translation or writing of your copy?

How I can support your company

Service Scope


The text for your new leaflet should attract your customer? Your social media content needs a facelift? You are looking for a catchy slogan or fancy product name? Then get writing support from a professional copywriter, so that your product or service offers shine in the right light – linguistically!

More Information


You want to sell your brand-new product? Your customers need to know all the brilliant details of your groundbreaking innovation? Or you are just looking to impress your clients with your next presentation? Whether you need to inspire, inform or sell, I can write the text to do just that.

So, what kind of texts are we talking about? For instance, the following:

  • Websites & blogs
  • Slogans & taglines
  • Social media content
  • Newsletters & press releases
  • Booklets, brochures, catalogues…

You already know what you want to say? Perfect! Send me your keywords and I will turn them into a convincing piece of text that follows your ideas. Alternatively, I can search for some myself. Your company has a clear point-of-sales concept? And not to mention your corporate terminology! No problem at all. I will stick to your requirements, so that your corporate identity is consistent throughout.

Your products and services have what it takes to convince, but only if presented properly. Get help from a professional writer to make sure that you reach your target customer. Contact me with your request and receive a tailored quotation ‒ free and unbinding.

When it comes to translations everything needs to be correct! Not only the content and language, the terminology as well and the text should be adapted to the target group and culture. Let a language expert take care of your translation and invest in quality, so that your message gets across to your clients.

More Information


Not only linguistic competence is required when translating a text, but also the necessary technical knowledge, because every text is unique. That’s why I specialize in the following areas:

  • marketing & advertisement
  • cosmetics & beauty
  • fashion & jewelry
  • sport & fitness
  • art & culture
  • social mediafood & drinks
  • food & drinks
  • travel & tourism
  • corporate communications

Since all those fields belong to the creative industry, I don’t just offer regular translations, but also transcreations – meaning that I adapt English or Chinese marketing texts to the German market while maintaining their exclusive brand voice.

You have special requirements regarding terminology? No problem. I will stick to your corporate wording throughout. Upon request, I will work with CAT tools to further ensure consistency. During and after the translation process we will work closely together and I am available for questions or modification requests at any time. Just get in touch with me and receive a tailor-made offer for your next project ‒ free and unbinding.

Contact Me


You are looking for someone who polishes your text, because it will be published? Or for someone who checks your translation for accuracy, since it is of high importance? Then get in touch with a professional. I am looking forward to help you with editing your texts, so that they are customer-ready.

More Information


Every text is a coherent piece of art. The writer puts a lot of thought into his text. If, however, that is not the case and a text is written carelessly, the reputation of the writer will suffer significantly. Like it or not, people judge us by how we speak – and write. Distract your readers with ambiguities, grammar mistakes and convoluted prose, and you will not get your message across.

That is why you should seek help from a linguist. I ensure that your document follows the correct grammar, punctuation and orthography rules. What’s more, I will make it logically comprehensible and perfectly legible. My work will not only provide you with a text that you are proud to put your name to. No, it will also guarantee that you are being well received by your readers.

Contact me, and I will provide you with a fitting quotation for your next project ‒ free and unbinding.

Performance Promise


With me, you know you will get your money’s worth. For copywriting and translation requests, you will receive a comprehensible price quote based on the word count of your text or on an hourly rate. Contact me and, before we start, you receive a detailed quotation for your project ‒ free and unbinding.


I am 100% capable in this field of work. For years, I have been working in this industry. What’s more, I actually hold a degree in translation from an accredited German university in contrast to many other freelancers. I ask the right questions and you can be certain that you are working with an expert.


I am committed to social causes and, as such, voluntarily translate for Translators without Borders, a charity that helps NGOs with translations. In order to become part of this international initiative, I had to pass a selection process. The organisation supports Médecins Sans Frontières, the Red Cross and many more.

Direct Contact

You don’t communicate with a project manager, but with me. This gives you the opportunity to pass your requirements directly to your writer, so that I can find the best solution for you. By working closely together, we ensure that your message is delivered according to your expectations.


You do not only require a translation in German, but also in Chinese delivered in your layout? Get in touch with me and I will provide you with a tailor-made service. I apply the same requirements in terms of quality to my colleagues as I do to myself, so that you can be sure to receive the best possible result.


The confidential handling of your documents is an obvious given in my profession. Rest assured that your sensitive data is protected with utmost care. You can count on me – or on the professional conduct code of, the world’s largest translators’ network, that I have endorsed as a member.
