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 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.

Simply get in touch with us to discuss how we can put our language skills to work for you!

Real native speakers and bilingual professionals

Genuine native speakers
Our language professionals are either fully bilingual in English and German, or they are English native speakers with university-level German skills.

The freelancers in our network are truly bilingual native speakers from diverse cultural backgrounds. Many of us grew up speaking two languages, and to this day we continue to straddle those cultural and linguistic lines as permanent English-speaking expats in Germany.

The bilingual professionals at GermanBureau have “gone native” in Germany, providing you with an intimate knowledge of German culture and a wide variety of thematic expertise. If you need writing services in English and German from authentic native speakers, we’ve got you covered!
