    About me
    I have recently completed a Masters degree in Translation and Professional Language Skills at the University of Bath and am seeking employment as a freelance translator.

    As an English native speaker, I work predominantly from German into English, but have also worked from English into German in the past.

    I have around one year full-time experience in translation, with another three years translating part-time.

    While I was studying, I began working for one agency and have now been working in a freelance capacity for them for almost two years. Now that I’ve finished my studies however, I have taken on freelance work on a full-time basis and am looking for new challenges.

    My specialisms include financial, legal and commercial translation (as I studied these in my Bachelors degree in International Management and German) but I also have experience translating marketing, automotive, engineering and many other types of text.

    I would be happy to take on around to 3,000 source words per day but have also worked at significantly higher outputs where the jobs were particularly urgent.

    In addition to working as a freelancer, I worked in the Corporate Communications Department at Siemens VDO and later Continental in Frankfurt am Main, translating, summarising and editing marketing and automotive texts in German and English. I also undertook a month's internship at a financial translation agency in Frankfurt.

    In addition to my translation skills, I also have experience in editing, copywriting, revision and proofreading and have studied Public Service interpreting at post graduate level.
