About me

I hold a translation degree (Diplom-Übersetzer) from Heidelberg University, and a Certificate of Proficiency in English from Cambridge University. After several years of working in the music, movies and games retail business, I have finally taken the step of becoming a freelance translator.
Since I also enjoy playing games in my spare time, these experiences help me pursue my dream career as a language professional with an emphasis on gaming.

My gaming experiences include the following platforms:

ATARI ST

Apple Macintosh

Microsoft Windows

iPad

iPhone

ATARI 7800

ATARI Jaguar

PlayStation Portable

PlayStation 3
