I offer English-German and German-English translation services for independent authors who want to open up new markets for their books. I specialize in science fiction, fantasy, military, historical novels and thrillers.

Here are some quotes by authors whose books I have translated:

Frank is one of the best English to German translators on the market. He did a superb job on translating The Red Baron into German, and he has an encyclopedic knowledge of military terms and history that is of tremendous value. Frank should be the first person you contact for all your English to German translating needs.
Richard J. Fox, author of The Red Baron.

Frank Dietz is an awesome translator! He's fast, has great communication, and formats the translation perfectly! He is great to work with and puts a lot of passion into creating an excellent German book. I hope to work with him again. Highly recommended!
- Rain Oxford, author of The Sorcerer's Quest

A pleasure to work with. Maintained an open line of communication during the translation process, demonstrated impressive translation and editing skills, and produced a high quality translation.
- E. J. Stevens, author of Shadow Sight
