"John Crutchfield ist ein hervorragender Korrekturleser und Übersetzer vom Deutschen ins Englische. Ich würde ihn jederzeit wieder engagieren und empfehle ihn wärmstens."

"In 2010, John Crutchfield provided me with an English translation of Willhelm Friedrich Gotter's Die Geisterinsel from 1797 and later, in 2016, with an English translation of Vincenz Hundhausen's 1926 German translation from the Chinese of Wang Sche-fu's Das Westzimmer. In both instances, Crutchfield's translations were methodically clear and concise while still retaining the poetic flavor of the original text. Furthermore, he produced the translations well before our agreed deadlines. I highly recommend John Crutchfield as a translator from German to English, particularly for literary works."
