Inside Prime

My dedication to languages and intercultural exchange began early on when I spent a year in the north of Spain, far from my hometown in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I went on to study languages and translation in Silicon Valley, the high-tech capital of the world. In more recent years, I have lived in Belgium and now permanently reside in the picturesque Palatinate region of Germany. My international background helps me understand different cultures and perspectives, which is key to effectively translating business documents geared toward specific audiences and industries. After managing a team of translators and editors at a leading German software company, I started my own translation business in 2004. Since then, I have built up a network of quality-driven colleagues and clients. I am proud to introduce PRIME Corporate Translations.

Senior VP, Corporate Communications

We value Zoë’s consistently high standards in quality, her subject matter expertise and her flexibility when it comes to last-minute jobs. For those reasons we have been relying on her translation services for many years—especially for financial communication materials such as quarterly and annual reports.

Senior Director EMEA
Red Hat

I would highly recommend Zoë to anyone in the German IT market seeking a professional English translation. Zoë knows the business inside and out, and always puts her customers’ goals first. Quality, reliability, flexibility … Zoë’s got you covered.

Manager, Translation Services
Software AG

Zoë has been translating our marketing materials such as product factsheets, brochures, customer success stories, etc. for years. I value her linguistic and subject-related expertise, her flexibility and absolute reliability. When content is unclear, she always gets to the bottom of it, which is another factor adding to the quality of her translations.

Digital Strategist

Zoë provided excellent translation services, at very short notice, of a number of English South African legal documents, to support my German Citizenship process. Excellent quality, with the result that I received my citizenship!
