Welcome to Merbis Kirk Translations.


I’m Amanda Merbis-Kirk BA (Hons), linguist and translator from German, Dutch and Portuguese into English.

A bilingual English<>German, speaker of near-native Dutch and fluent Portuguese, I guarantee accurate, culturally sensitive translations of your texts, meaning for meaning.

My areas of expertise include the hospitality and leisure industries, formal business language and website localisations, art and design, and personal documents. My services include translation, post-editing of machine translation, editing and proofreading any of your English language documents requiring a native eye. Having spent many years living and working in Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal and the UK, I am extremely perceptive when it comes to cultural differences and always delighted to lend a helping hand in finding creative solutions.
