I have a Master's degree in English and German Literature and Media Science (Film Analysis). Since 2011 I have been living in Toronto and I am working as a freelancer in translating and interpreting, also I am writing kid's books. I have gained experience in translating topics around online gambling, casino, technical brochures, legal terms and conditions, as well as medical questionnaires. Before, I have worked for several German TV-shows, both as writer and researcher. This included achieving profound knowledge in the most different fields very quickly. Also, I did international email correspondence with renown scientists to get expertise about their special topics. Besides, I have written six non-fiction children's books about various subjects including science, biology, sports, lifestyle, religion and mysteries. I love language and feel at home in both languages, English and German.
