Westcoast German Home

Willkommen!  Welcome!  Greuzi! Grüß Gott!

The Westcoast German News Blog, based in Vancouver, BC lets you know what Austrian, Swiss & Germans on the west coast of Canada and the US are up to.  We offer information on events, community updates and opportunities to advertise on our site.

Westcoast German News also publishes “Das Schwarze Brett” magazine and the next issue will be coming in September 2018. Below is sample issue.  If you click on the link, it will take you to a platform called “MagCloud” that will let you order this magazine or others.

Casual Translation Services

Lately, I have been translating German stories, documents and newspaper articles into English.  If you have a story or journal you have written in German that needs to be typed up or translated into English, you can contact me.  Projects are paid on an agreed upon rate, rather than by the hour.

This is not “official court translation”, but basically so your grandchildren can read and understand your work. I also can spend time on formatting and design of a “front cover” in case of a book, as I have experience with desktop publishing (Adobe InDesign) and Photoshop.
