Beautyjagd: Organic beauty news in English (Chapter 11)

One of my favourite projects is doing the translations for organic beauty blog Beautyjagd.de. Beautyjagd is run by Julia Keith who really knows her stuff: she writes about organic C&T brands, stores and companies, about new product launches, trends and ingredients.

Sometimes she publishes interviews with retailers or brands; there is coverage from trade shows and other industry events – my favourites are the weekly Beauty Notes: a round-up of new organic products, launches and brand news from around the world. In fact, this is what I particularly like about Beautyjagd: the international angle. Although the blog’s primary focus is the German organic C&T industry, Julia also writes about international brands and retailers so you get a good mixture of articles.

I do the translations for Beautyjagd: every two week there is an English-language post which offers a condensed version of the most important articles that Julia has published over the previous two weeks. And it occurred to me that I haven’t linked to any of my translations yet! The latest English installment went online today, you can find it here:

News and Reviews from the World of Organic Beauty (11) – including an article on Japanese incense brand Shoyeido, a visit to DIY beauty store Aroma Zone in Paris, organic beauty Christmas presents, a review of US brand Ilia Beauty’s Vivid Foundation and plenty of organic products launches and brand news.

New project: Beautyjagd.de – Organic beauty news in English!

I have a new editorial project and it has already become one of my favourite assignments. I don’t know if you’ve come across Beautyjagd.de? It’s the biggest organic beauty blog in Germany and German-speaking Europe and offers well-researched articles on a wide range of topics – brand profiles, detailed product reviews, interviews, articles about regional beauty brands…..It’s one of the few beauty blogs I read for fun and not just for professional purposes.

Anyway, I’ve been a fan of Beautyjagd for years so I was delighted when Julia (who runs the blog) approached me with the following idea: she wants to offer her readers an English-language version of the most important articles (for those times when Google Translate simply won’t cut it!) and asked me for help with the translation and localisation of the content. Yay!

Instead of translating every single article we decided it would be best to publish a condensed English version of the most interesting features that have appeared on Beautyjagd. And you can check out the first English installment here. Enjoy!
