My original academic background is in business administration, with a focus on marketing/international business. After getting my university degree (MBA-equivalent), I worked as a strategy consultant and marketing specialist for over 5 years. Subsequently, I studied journalism to pursue my passion of writing.

I'm a published writer and have written the texts for several books (mainly travel/lifestyle, in German and English) that were published in Germany between 2007 and 2009. I've also worked for radio and TV stations. I am very text-savvy and fond of languages (German and Turkish: native speaker, English: close to native, Italian: fluent, French: intermediate).

Since 2012, I have mainly been working as a freelance translator for the Japanese online platform Gengo/Lionbridge as well as other agencies. My main language pair is English to German, and I'm rated as a top quality translator. Working with high attention to detail, I focus on marketing/business/finance (esp. trading) texts, legal texts (contracts, data privacy, GDPR) and technical texts.

Here is a link to my profile on Gengo:

In addition, I've had several interpreting assignments for various language combinations on trade fairs throughout Germany as well as for employee trainings (technical language) in both Switzerland and Germany.

Currently based in Istanbul/Turkey as well as Cologne/Germany, I am also available globally for interpreting assignments.
