Guten Tag! I’m Joel Strauss, a German-to-English translator, English author, and dual-citizen of Germany and Canada. Born in Canada to German parents, I’m a 100% native English speaker who also spent several years growing up and attending a German language school in Western Germany.
I aim for translations that are more than just accurate, but also reflect the unique needs of the author – keeping the tone, style, and meaning intact. I take pride in creating something that not only reads well, but is authentic and true to the language.
