Roland Grefer is a German to English and English to German translator.

He began his education with an emphasis on chemistry before he became a Datenverarbeitungskaufmann, focusing initially on systems administration, database administration and system integration. Subsequently, he expanded into information security and served for almost a decade on the Board of Editors of the SANS NewsBites, a leading InfoSec newsletter.

Over more than a decade, Roland gradually switched to full-time translation, covering a variety of fields. In addition, he serves as proofreader and editor for agencies and fellow translators, and also provides his technical and subject matter expertise for all translations, honed by a continued interest in all things electronic, technical, and scientific, as well as in some sociological and psychological topics. Roland also used to be one of the editors of interaktiv, the newsletter of the German Language Division of the American Translators Association.
