Bio
My passion for the English language and translating has led me on a unique journey with stops in Vienna, Linz, Vancouver and London. Every day, I live and breath the culture of the English-speaking countries which enables me to provide you with excellent translations every time.

I got my first jobs as technical writer / translator while I was still taking courses at university. For many years, I worked as an in-house translator/writer for an engineering office which made me an expert for technical translations, especially instruction manuals and assembly instructions. Many contract translations complement my massive experience. Additionally to my work experience, I spent many years in Vancouver (Canada) which gave me more insight into North American culture and language and further strengthened my linguistic intuition.

During my time at the University of Vienna, where I majored in English and American Studies (I graduated with honours in 2010), I gathered solid knowledge in translating various, mostly literary, texts. At the same time, my linguistic intuition and feel for the English language was sharpened by the study of the literature and culture of the English-speaking countries. Furthermore, I am currently enrolled in an online-learning course for translating at London City University as well as in an MBA course about Applied Knowledge Management.
