about

True professionalism operates quietly. Quality speaks for itself.

Hi, I’m Adam.

I provide high-quality translations from German to English.

“Taos” is Ancient Greek for peacock and represents, for me, the colorfulness and diversity of language.

I usually translate in the areas of art, film, culture, journalism, business, advertising, academics, and other creative fields. I am also available to proofread and edit your english texts, making a large impact for a small investment.

Since 2014 I’ve been active in Berlin as a freelance translator. Before that I received my bachelor’s degree in philosophy from UC Berkeley in California. In 2013 I moved to Berlin and completed a Cambridge CELTA qualification for teaching English. In 2016 I received a full scholarship from DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) to study philosophy at Freie Universität, Berlin. My master’s thesis (written in German) is about language and experience.

My excellent linguistic skills and wide-ranging interests in literature, art, culture, history, journalism, and science allow me to produce great texts.
