About me
Hi. I'm a full-time, fully qualified professional translator. I’ve been working with German throughout my 25-year professional life. I am half German and pretty much bilingual, though technically my mother tongue is English. I grew up in England and went to work in Germany when I graduated (BA Hons German).

I lived in Germany for 5 years, where I taught English for business and translating. I also translated texts for a variety of clients and did a number of interpreting jobs. I returned to England to teach German, and was for many years head of a large and successful German Department at a very popular school.

I took the Institute of Linguists Dip Trans exams and passed first time, with a ‘Distinction’ in the literature option and a ‘Merit’ for the general paper and am now a Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists.

For some years now I have been translating freelance, working primarily in the fields of marketing and advertising, cars, tourism, sports, art, etc.
