I am back in Germany after living almost 30 years in New Zealand and 2 years in Abu Dhabi, UAE. I consider myself truly bilingual, with a fine understanding for subtle differences in both languages.

I have worked in education for many years, building on a career as a pediatric nurse, and have several degrees in education/pedagogy from New Zealand universities. I also had a few break-out years in arts and crafts, another area I am passionate about. I am widely travelled, enjoy learning about different lifestyles and have lived in and experienced many different cultures.

I approach my translating work with efficiency and accuracy and find great pleasure in being able to translate a text well with all its nuances and subtleties. I am very interested in translating children's books between my language pairs. However, the bulk of my translation focusses on technical/engineering documents, company training and pension schemes, real estate valuations and business and legal correspondence.
