Liability for content
This site was created with the utmost care. However, I cannot accept any liability for the accuracy, completeness, and timeliness of the content. I am only responsible for my own content according to general legal provisions. Content, which is merely transmitted by me or stored third-party information is not monitored by me or checked specifically for illegal content. Should you notice any alleged unlawful content on this website, please notify me and I will examine it and, if necessary, delete it after a reasonable time.
Liability for (external) links
I have no influence on linked content on other websites and take on no liability. The respective website operators are responsible for linked content. If I do use links, I have checked the content stored there conscientiously at the time and I could not find any possible violations of law. I have no obligation to continuously control the content on the linked pages. When I am notified of such an infringement I will check the link, and delete it after a reasonable time.
All content (graphics, text, video) on this website was created by me and is subject to the Copyright Act. Reproduction, editing, distributing, making available, and other forms of recovery require the author’s consent. If you are interested in using this content, you may contact me.
If you become aware of a copyright infringement on my website, please notify me so that I can check the violation and take appropriate action.
Using this website is usually possible without providing personal information. If any personal information should be required, providing your information is voluntary, and personal data is stored in accordance with the statutory provisions and the respective Data Protection Act. Your data will not be disclosed to third parties without your consent, nor will I use it for promotional purposes.
However, I would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (for example, when communicating via e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against unauthorized access by third parties can not be guaranteed.
The use of data published on this page (under the obligation to publish the website operator’s data) or the contact form to send unsolicited advertisements and information materials is expressly forbidden. I reserve the right to take legal action in the case of unsolicited advertising or spam.
Following the guidelines issued in 2015 by the Federal Trade Commission, I am informing you, the reader of my blog and follower of my social media presences, that you will encounter posts and other published content where I use special links to receive a small compensation for sponsoring, endorsing or partnering with another company. In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume this to be true for any content that is marked with either the words “Affiliate link” or the hashtags #ad or #af.
When you click an affiliate link, purchases are made on external affiliate company websites. These companies pay me a small commission or compensation for promoting their website or products. Also, the prices for their products and services remain the same for you, whether you go through my links or not. This means you will not pay more by clicking through my link.
I use two main types of affiliate programs:
Amazon Affiliate Links
The Translators is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon properties including, but not limited to, amazon.com/.de. Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases via my Amazon affiliation links supports my cause at no additional cost to you.
When a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their “shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale. Amazon links are not “pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else, however, I will get a commission on that sale.
Product Affiliate Links
These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then the blogger gets a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation. Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link. These links are also not “pay per click.”
Currently, I’m using affiliate links from Amazon and Elegant Themes.
I do not write sponsored posts just for the sake of earning money. I translate for a living and when I post any content, I want to offer you real, unbiased information. However, should a post be sponsored by a company, I will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post.
Please note that I only recommend products that I use myself or that I would recommend to my loved ones. If I do earn a commission thanks to your click, then your purchase helps to support my work in bringing you relevant information about the translation business. I appreciate you as my reader very much! Thank you!!

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In
In case IP anonymization is activated, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
Use of “Social Plugins”
This website uses various “social plugins”, for example, for Facebook and Twitter, to allow visitors to communicate with me and about The Translators and to optimize the website’s performance. These plug-ins are displayed as images and are clearly identifiable through the respective logos or lettering. When you access this website, these plugins directly connect to the servers of these companies. The contents of the plug-ins communicate directly with your browser and transfer data, such as your IP address and device-related data to the service provider of the social network. Therefore, I have no control over what data is collected and to what extent. Clicking the images will let you share content from this website with other users on the respective social network. It is possible that by sharing the content of this website, some of your data might be stored by the respective businesses.
It is possible that such data, e.g. your IP address, will be stored with a social network, even without clicking the images, as long as you are visiting my website. To prevent this, please log out of the respective social network before you visit this website. For the exact scope of data collection, you can also directly contact the respective company. The respective browser manufacturers offer a range of add-ons that can prevent data collecting.
Because of the large number of companies, plugins, addons, and browsers, it is not possible for me to provide a complete overview of all addresses, contact details and types of programs here. If you have questions, please contact me.
