Story
Tagline
Spanish–English translator, editor and proofreader.
Introduction

Rebekka is a bilingual and bi-cultural translator, editor and proofreader with an international upbringing who is based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Having also done the 9–5 editorial and translation thing for the legal, education and civil engineering industries, her varied multi-skills sets and experience forms an invaluable basis for her translation and editing work.

In 2016 Rebekka changed angles preferring to make herself more available to a wider set of clients through Style and Words – a language practice built on integrity, professionalism and reliability, and of course delivering text that is accurate, clear and targeted for the correct use and audience.
