Fluency in the language is insufficient. Fluency in the subject matter and the culture of the author/reader are also needed. Even then, you need to be able to write in the language without first translating from your mother tongue. Petra does that. I am not convinced you do.
Consider translating from English into your native language. Few people can do a great job unless the destination language is native. You may have more than one native language, or your native language might vary by subject . My mother tongue is English; my native language for medicine is German, for nuclear power is French and for household appliances is Spanish. I only do translation work as a favor for friends and management consulting clients.
