About me



My German upbringing combined with almost 20 years of living and working in the UK has made me a language specialist with a deep understanding of the subtleties of the English language with a characteristic German inclination for perfectionism.

Whatever product your clients may sell, whatever service they may deliver – I will make any marketing doc sound as snappy and convincing as the original. Although I stay faithful to the original tone of the source document, I do stray from the source text to make the translation sound as though it was written in German and will appeal to the required target audience. End customers and agencies appreciate my complete reliability and thorough research methods.

Due to my background as a legal secretary in both Germany and the UK, my 6 years’ experience as a public service interpreter for Kent police, Canterbury and Maidstone Crown Courts and prisons and 5 years' experience as a lay magistrate at the local youth court in my current home town in Germany I also specialise in legal translations (contract, criminal and family law).
