About me
My favorite subjects are languages, literature and computers, I like technology and have studied chemistry and sciences. Although I never thought that I will have to apply these skills in this way, I have found them immensely useful in my freelance translator practice. Combining linguistic aptitude with technical interests is the best approach in translation that gives perfect results.

I am not afraid to get my hands dirty by changing the oil in my car. Every technical translator should try it once in a while to get a unique field experience. But I can also discuss the transcendental interpretation of quantum mechanics with philosophy students. Specialization and diversity feeds one another.

Translation is sometimes hard and tedious but I am really enjoying this work since I can do it freelance – in the library or Starbucks, while riding the train, or waiting in the airport when flights are canceled due to blizzard. You are always welcome to send me a message.
