Jewish Museum Berlin full website relaunch

Completely edit/retranslate the vast website of the largest Jewish museum in Europe.

In the eight-month period leading up to the Jewish Museum Berlin’s relaunch of its voluminous website, I personally reconciled all past English content with the edited and revised German content of the new website. In collaboration with my contacts at the museum, I developed an updated style guide and coordinated several other translators over the course of the project, which equated to the text of a 500-page book. I am also a member of the museum’s regular translators’ pool and also translate content for exhibitions, their annual newsletter, and speeches by Germany’s former president and other high-profile figures at their annual gala.

Scope
The equivalent of 500+ pages
Duration
8 months, and ongoing
Quote from Translation
“Many people were forced to flee Germany in the era of Nazi rule between 1933 and 1945. Some left for political or other reasons, but most went into exile because they were persecuted as Jews. At that time the professions Jews were allowed to practice in Germany were restricted, and Jewish children and students were increasingly barred from attending schools and universities. Furthermore, the Nazis introduced a growing number of measures to deprive Jews of their possessions and civil rights, limit food supplies, and hamper their freedom of movement. This meant they were denied access to cinemas, swimming pools, social clubs, and many other public places.”
