Bio
I am an interpreter and translator for German, English, Spanish and Austrian Sign Language.​

​My interest in languages and cultures began when I lived abroad for the first time: Working as an Au Pair in the United States, I lived with an American family and took care of their children for one year. In 1996, I registered at the University of Vienna and began my studies at the Department of Translation and Interpretation (now: Center for Translation Studies) with the languages German, English and Spanish. A semester abroad in Barcelona gave me the opportunity to also immerse in the Spanish language and culture. After graduation I joined "Universitas", the Austrian Interpreters' and Translators' Association.​

​Since 2002, I have been working part-time as a translator for a patent attorney's office in Vienna and part-time as a freelance translator and interpreter. At the same time I attended seminars for future sign language interpreters and took the professional accreditation examination with the Austrian Association of Sign Language Interpreters and Translators ÖGSDV.

​With the variation of my professional activities I have been able to get insight into different fields and gain experience with diverse text types. My work as a translator at the patent attorney's office is mainly focused on chemical, biochemical and technical texts as well as correspondence relating to patent law. Freelancing as a translator, I have worked on websites, magazine articles, business reports, catalogues, reports, art descriptions, advertising brochures and plenty more. Interpreting assignments have taken me to varied situations, from congresses to community interpreting.
