Editing and Translation

CDE’s editing and translation staff offer expert English language work on texts about sustainable development, inter- and transdisciplinary research, development and research cooperation, the environment, and related issues. We aim for coherence of argumentation and clarity of style.

Our team of professionals has many years of experience in editing, translating, and scientific writing. Our work covers a wide range of publication types, from webpages and news blurbs to scientific papers, project proposals and reports, policy briefs, and entire books. We translate from German, French, and Russian into English and from English, French, and Russian into German.

Editing and translation are done primarily in the context of research programmes, development projects, and mandates entrusted to CDE, but we offer our services to other interested parties as well. Details are available upon request.

layout and design


Do you require professional support in the areas of graphic design and layout? Do you wish to lend your project or idea a visual form? Or do you need an attractive flyer, brochure, or annual report?

Whether working with existing design elements and corporate design or our own original creations, we approach every project with passion. Using carefully selected typography and refined, thoughtful design, we realize products that are both beautiful and functional.

We gladly offer graphic design services for scientific projects, entire institutions, and all other interested parties.
