Adam Yeomans: the “AY” in AY Linguistic

Hello and thanks for visiting my website!

My name is Adam Yeomans (yes, that’s me in the picture) and I grew up in Clevedon, near Bristol, in England. My passion for languages was first sparked at the age of 12, during my first school exchange visit to Ettlingen, near Karlsruhe, in Germany. I now use this love of languages, along with my keen eye for detail, to help my clients communicate in style with their English-speaking audience, all the while retaining their core message.

Would you like to know why working with me is a great experience and how exactly I became a freelance translator? Well, read on!

My passion for languages definitely comes across in the way I translate, and I will always give my best for you and your project to ensure the quality you deserve. Communication is a key aspect of this, too.

Freelance Translation, Based in Germany

AY Linguistic was born in Clevedon in December 2014. This was a dream come true, but I couldn’t help but feel something was missing. A month in Karlsruhe in 2017 showed me what it was: Germany! So, I relocated to Ettlingen, the town where it all began, later that year. Of course, AY Linguistic came with me, too. (Fun fact: Clevedon and Ettlingen are actually twin towns). My road to becoming a freelance translator in Germany has been long and winding, but it’s been a blast
