Background:

I am a native German speaker fully at home in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish. Having spent more than 20 years in foreign countries (Britain, France, Brazil, Peru and Argentina), I possess an intimate understanding of how each language is embedded in its specific cultural context. Although I received my university education in the social sciences, I have gradually shifted my focus to the area of economics and finance, with particular emphasis on the financial markets.

My greatest assets are my research and writing skills, my desire for perfection, and my networking abilities. The result is accurate translations which flow as smoothly as the source texts.

Education:

M.A., Anthropology, University of Durham (England)
M.A., History, University of St. Andrews (Scotland)
B.A., History, University of Grenoble (France)
