My name is Katharine Eyre and I originally come from Great Britain although I have been living and working in Austria since 2004.
After studying law in England, Germany and Austria, I worked as a lawyer in Austria for many years, specialising in banking and finance. As part of my work in this area, I frequently completed translations from German into English, including contracts, court judgements, expert/legal opinions and correspondence.
During this time, I became absolutely fluent in German, with a strong command of specific terminologies, for example legal, business and public administration.
I also expanded and strengthened my German language skills by successfully completing a course in journalism at the Freie Journalistenschule (Berlin) in 2013, specialising in PR and corporate communications.
