I am a qualified and experienced German translator with a solid background of working in bilingual Customer Service, Customer Support and Marketing. I have undertaken many projects regarding press releases, business communication and correspondence, company website representation and scripts. Being a devoted mother of three I personally have a very strong interest in pregnancy/birth, antenatal and postnatal care, child care/child development and health and education and very much welcome any assignments in those areas as well.
I currently work part-time in the evening and on weekends
I was born and educated in Germany where I studied librarianship in Cologne.
In 1997 I moved to England as the language and the country itself had always been a passion of mine. I worked as nanny, library assistant and in the hotel business to enhance my language skills and to make myself familiar with the UK's cultural aspects before embarking on a career in bilingual customer service, support and marketing.
After gaining the Institute of Linguists - Diploma in Translation in 2005 I have worked as a freelance translator on a part-time basis allowing me to be at home with my children during the day while still enjoying a fullfilling career working evenings and weekends.
