About

My name is Kay Barbara and I am a freelance translator and founder of We Translate IT specializing in the German localization of computer and video games. After completing my training as IT Systems Engineer at Siemens AG in Germany, I went on to study for a degree as “Diplom-√úbersetzer” (~MA in Translation Studies) at Leipzig University before becoming a freelance translator. I have been working exclusively in the localization of video games for almost 2.5 years and yet I’m still looking forward to every new project that comes my way.

My aim for the WTI Blog is to write about my experiences in video game localization and translation in general as well as some practical and theoretical aspects. I will do my best to reply to any questions and comments.

You can find more information about me on my ProZ profile and my LinkedIn profile or visit my company website: We Translate IT.
