English is more than ever one of the most important languages for communication. Hence it is vital for organisations to be able to express their message perfectly. How often have you recently read a brochure or visited a website and thought “that text does not read smoothly – it has not been professionally translated”?
Whilst English may have established itself as an internationally used language, German, on the other hand, is spoken as a first and second language by a large number of Europeans. English or American organisations need therefore to be certain that their services or products are presented to this important German-speaking market in the local “language” which means not only translating but interpreting the sense of the texts. For this reason, we at Dickinson Translations use only native language speakers for translating into English or German.


These specialists are trained to understand and deliver your message into the desired target language and not literally translate it word for word. It is a fact that translations from all medical fields are among the most sensitive texts of all.

Globalisation facilitates exchanges between medical professionals around the world. Sharing knowledge, observing scientific discoveries, simultaneously launching medicines in several markets… there is no shortage of applications and it is imperative to choose the right translation agency.

Birgit Dickinson’s enthusiasm for the English language led her to London, England on completion of her “Abitur” which is the equivalent to the British A-level / American SAT exam. Following her graduation as a bilingual secretary, she worked in the London travel industry as PA to the Managing Director.

On her return to Germany, she spent several years managing the English/German correspondence for a company of American patent attorneys. Her first experience with translations in the medical world was gained with the pharmaceutical giant Merck & Co. Further professional engagements included interpreting for trade union delegations, proofreading for authors in addition to translating in the field of clinical research and art.

During this period Birgit obtained the diploma as Certified Translator and founded DICKINSON TRANSLATIONS. The experience gained throughout her career serves as an excellent foundation for the specialisation of DICKINSON TRANSLATIONS in the field of clinical research and economics.

English like a native speaker

Although a native German, Birgit has native fluency in English and speaks the language without any perceivable foreign accent. This mastery of the language enables her to translate into English as well as a native English speaker, something very rare amongst non-English speaking natives.

English as a hobby

Birgit’s enthusiasm for English does not stop in the office. She is involved with many social activities connected with the English language and is an active member of the American Women’s Club of Cologne (www.awccologne.org) which, with over 150 members, is a contact point for women (and their partners) from English-speaking countries and which is also active in supporting charity organisations.

Adham Sourani (L.L.M. Master of Laws), who came to Germany in 2014, first underwent training as an integration facilitator (intercultural knowledge, social legislation, laws and regulations for migrants, etc.) and then successfully completed a Master’s degree in “German Law” at the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms University in Bonn, specialising in civil law (with a focus on warranty law).

He speaks Arabic and Kurdish (native languages) and was recently appointed as a translator for the Arabic language by the President of the Higher Regional Court of Cologne.

He translates all kinds of official/legal documents such as birth and marriage certificates, school and university degrees and certificates etc. into German or Arabic.
