Bio
I am a state-certified English to German translator with a law degree from the University of Bochum, Germany (Diplom-Juristin).

Prior to becoming a professional translator, I worked for several years as a project manager in international environments (fields: Mobile Entertainment, International SMS & Mobile Solutions, Travel Incentive Services) including three years in an international company in Zagreb, Croatia.
Business language was English.

I am a member of the German Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators (BDÜ, Bundesverband der Dolmetscher und Übersetzer e.V.).
