An American in Freiburg

8 Questions for Andrea Unkelbach

Senior Project Manager Andrea Unkelbach is celebrating 15 years at Peschel Communications this year – the perfect occasion to ask her a few questions.

The language of the pandemic

The pandemic has changed our lives and our language. These changes aren’t just reflected by a language itself, but also the associated culture.

“Fahrvergnügen” sounds echt German! … more German words that found their way into the English language

Two weeks ago, we addressed the topic of German words used in everyday English. In this blog article, we turn our attention to more specialized borrowings. We explore terminology used in scientific contexts, but also words used in advertising – a field in which inventing new, creative words is virtually part of the job description.

Playing foosball in the hinterland – Why German is not as foreign to English speakers as you might think

Sure, English words are sneaking into German dictionaries at breakneck pace these days, but German has made its ‘deutsche mark’ on the English language, too. For translators and interpreters who work between these two linguistic worlds, this commingling is important to be aware of. Read on to find out which words to look out for.

Accelerated approval: How urgently needed medications can be authorised for marketing more quickly

Since March of this year, if not earlier, the whole world has been watching the spread and further development of the coronavirus with bated breath. Many people are eagerly awaiting potential vaccines, for which some medicinal substances have already entered the pivotal trial phase. Remdesivir, an active substance which could potentially be used to treat COVID-19, has recently received conditional approval to be marketed in the EU. Read on to find out more about this.

Free online translation tools – too good to be true?

Times have changed, and so have machine translation tools. Just a few years ago, machine translations were something of a laughing stock — but now even language professionals are astonished by the quality they provide. Professional translators increasingly find themselves having to answer the question of whether there’s really a need for human translations any more. Here, we’ll take a look at the major challenges involved.

DIN EN 15038 is dead – long live ISO 17100

Even though translating is a creative activity and translation quality may seem difficult to measure, attempts have been made to assess what makes a translation service good. After the old EN 15038 was recently replaced by ISO 17100, Peschel Communications decided to apply for an audit.

German expressions in other languages

If this article is all Greek to you… we wouldn’t be that surprised. Idioms and turns of phrase certainly bring a distinct flavour to the languages we speak, but they can be particularly hard to understand for native speakers, let alone to translate!

Translating personal documents

At Peschel Communications, we translate what’s on the page, but we also tailor the finished product to fit the specific purpose of the translation.

Jogging bottoms or business casual? From in-house to freelance and back again

In the digital age, a job in translation could look like any other office job, but it could also look a lot different. Freelancers can earn a living and still go on holiday at the drop of a hat if they so choose. The flipside of the coin, of course, is that this flexibility means the concept of “after work” starts to lose its meaning. Whether flexibility or routine produces better results varies from person to person and even from year to year.

New input at Elia together 2018

It’s not all Greek to us! The leadership team at Peschel Communications attended Elia together in Athens to beef up their knowledge of the international hot topics in translation and translation software – and they even ran into some familiar faces!

Making the switch to a career in translation

Christmas in the skate shop – or: What sets a professional apart

When we began brainstorming for our Christmas party this year, it quickly became clear that we wanted to do something a little out of the ordinary.

Translation is a craft – an internship report

“If I want to learn to swim, I have to go into the water, otherwise I’ll learn nothing.” (August Bebel) With a Bachelor’s degree in translation under my belt and the start of my Master’s approaching, I wanted to see what it’s like to work in a translation company and put the knowledge I’d acquired at university into practice. After a

Translating marketing texts

Marketing texts are about more than facts – they are about emotions. These are conveyed through a rich mixture of language, content and images, often using wordplay, rhyme or other stylistic devices. So what does this mean for translating marketing texts into other languages? Can marketing texts even be translated? There is no definitive answer to this question. Unlike very

The life of a translation project manager

You have been working as a project manager at Peschel Communications for more than 12 years now. How did you come to work in this role? Basically, it was a question of supply and demand.

What is it that you actually do? Or: What’s challenging about translating?

Let’s face it, basically everyone can speak English. More and more students are spending at least one semester abroad and even toddlers are now learning foreign languages. So what on earth do we need professional translators for? The answer is simple: to separate the sense from the nonsense. Both customers and friends usually only have a vague idea of how

Project Managers: The Superheros of the Translation Industry

Since I started Peschel Communications almost 20 years ago, translation projects have become ever more complex: more languages, varying file formats, increasingly demanding specialist subjects and more and more complex requests from clients.

CAT Tools

When talking to a translator about his or her work, you will sooner or later hear them talk about CAT tools.
