About me
Who I am:

As a bilingual translator, I specialize in transcreation and provide creative translations between German and English in the area of public relations, marketing, advertising and news writing. I draw on my practical experience as a journalist and social media coordinator, as well as my educational background in integrated marketing communication, to help businesses expand their brands across the pond.

After living 20 years in Germany and more than 10 years in the USA, I am intimately familiar with both cultures and am happy to apply my unique cultural and marketing insights as a cross-cultural consultant for businesses that are interested in breaking into the German or US market.

My varied experience includes, but is not limited to: translating and writing press releases; translating commercial websites, sales presentations, newsletters and various business communications; translating and writing newspaper and magazine articles; social media content creation; SEO copy-writing.

My Specialties
  • Public Relations: Translation of press releases, news articles, promotional and advertising materials, brochures and leaflets, slogans
  • Marketing & Communications: Translation of websites, marketing materials, corporate communications, newsletters, presentations, social media content, company profiles
  • Transcreation: Adaptation of marketing materials for the German/US market to create conceptual rather than literal translations that adapt your core message for your target audience (in German or English) while keeping in mind cultural and social standards and peculiarities.
  • Other areas: Tourism & Travel, General / Conversation / Letters / Resumes
