My name is Karen Watkins. I am 58 years old , hold an Honours degree in German from London University and a postgraduate Diploma in Translation from the Institute of Linguists, of which I am also a member. After many years teaching German, I am now working as a freelance translator (since July 2010) and work exclusively from German into my native English. I have been an Associate of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting since 2010.
I am interested in freelance work in the following areas: Travel and tourism, education and training, marketing, events management, HR and trade fair material.
I am a reliable worker and pride myself on my communication skills. I am extremely flexible as regards working-times ; ‘unsociable’ hours are rarely a problem for me. Average output at the moment is 1500 words per day.
