Genuine native speakers

Our people: professional native speakers

GermanBureau is your network of independent language professionals. All of us are English native speakers with bilingual skills in English and German. As freelancers we offer native text, translation and localization as well as English courses for business and higher education.

Freelancer Alex Bakst launched GermanBureau in 2010 from his office in Berlin, Germany. The company was originally set up as a journalistic enterprise, delivering on-the-ground reporting from Germany for American readers and listeners. But over the years our professional network of freelance native speakers has grown to include translators, English lecturers and language professionals from a variety of other fields.

We fully acknowledged these developments in 2014 when GermanBureau.com got a makeover to reflect our new mission as a language service provider. Today we deliver professional translation services and polished bilingual content for private companies and public institutions. As experienced university lecturers, we can also strengthen your global business with in-house English courses and project-specific language workshops for individuals or groups at any level of proficiency.
