About me
I come from Edinburgh, Scotland and currently live in Stuttgart, Germany, where I work as a translator and Business English trainer. My training work takes place at a major German bank and insurance company, in the finance, accounting and IT departments. This perfectly complements my translation specialities, and helps me to keep up-to-date with the latest developments in these areas.

I previously worked in the sales and marketing department of a medium-sized software company in Stuttgart, which supplied OEMs worldwide with test equipment for telecommunications networks (fixed, mobile and IP). My responsibilities were mainly in:
- Copywriting
- Translating
- Sales & marketing
- Customer training
- Sales and reporting process optimisation
- Working on EU-funded research projects
I stayed at this company for eight years, and gained good insight into the business and technical side of highly-innovative engineering activities.

In my spare time (not much), I enjoy reading fiction, mountainbiking, snowboarding, travelling, cooking, playing flamenco guitar and enjoying an evening of general chit-chat over a glass of wine with friends.
Recently, I was also involved in three fundraising activities, where I cycled around 350 km each across India, Cambodia and Tanzania in support of vulnerable children.

Thanks again for visiting my profile. It should be possible to conclude from it that I have proven competence and interest in the areas of IT, marketing and finance/economics - combined with fluency and experience in the German and Spanish languages. In addition, I am a naturally curious person, so also welcome translation assignments in other areas.

I look forward to working with you, and am open to answer any questions you may have.
