Bruce MacPherson

"You have to learn to walk before you can run". Quite a bit of wisdom right there – in the same way, you also have to learn to write before you can translate. Bruce's writing career began long before he had ever heard the words "Guten Tag". His love of writing began at a very early age and continued through to university, where he studied literature and worked as a reporter and editor for the student newspaper. And it didn't stop there. After university he landed a job writing advertising, speeches and corporate communications for some of the largest companies in Canada.

It was only then, in 1991, that he moved to Germany and became first a trainer and then a successful translator. Just the kind of background needed to turn your German texts into effective pieces of English communication.
