About me
(Scroll down for English)

Als darstellende Künstlerin habe ich mein ganzes Berufsleben hindurch Liedtexte und Libretti übersetzen müssen. Ich besitze einen Bachelor-Abschluss im Fach Kunstwissenschaften der Carnegie-Mellon University (USA) und einen Magister-Abschluss der Eastman School of Music (USA). Seit über 20 Jahren arbeite ich als professionelle Sängerin in Deutschland und Österreich.
Darüber hinaus habe ich Drehbücher verfasst und Konzertbesprechungen für Theater und Oper veröffentlicht sowie ehrenamtliche Übersetzungen deutschsprachiger Blogs verfasst. Meine Muttersprache ist amerikanisches Englisch, die deutsche Sprache beherrsche ich fließend in Wort und Schrift.
Meine Spezialkenntnisse umfassen die Disziplinen Darstellende Kunst, Reisen und Tourismus (vor allem Alpintourismus), sowie Geschichte. Darüber hinaus unterstütze ich meinen Mann in seiner Arbeit als Buchhändler und Antiquar und konnte mir so auch Fachkenntnisse in den Bereichen Buchhandel, Verlagswesen, IT, allgemeines Recht sowie Internet-Handel aneignen. Außerdem verfüge ich über Erfahrung im Lesen und Übersetzen alter Handschriften, u.a. der altdeutschen Handschrift Sütterlin.
Ich liefere ausgewogene, sorgfältig recherchierte Übersetzungen, zuverlässig und pünktlich.

Hello, and thank you for visiting my profile page! I am a freelance translator living in Germany. My native language is American English and I speak German fluently. My specialties lie in the arts, German history, and tourism (particularly Alpine regions such as South Tyrol and Switzerland). I also regularly assist my husband in his profession as a bookseller, which has given me an inside view of book publishing, IT, general law, and online retail. With his quality control I am able to decipher and translate handwritten texts, for example texts in Sütterlin script.
I have been active as a professional musician in Austria and Germany for over twenty years, with a bachelor's degree in fine arts from Carnegie-Mellon University and a Master's degree from the Eastman School of Music.
I have been translating lyrics and libretti my entire professional life. I've also written scripts and concert narrations for professional theater events and volunteer translations for German-speaking bloggers, and have maintained my own local culture blog as well.

I deliver thoughtful, well-researched translations, stress free and on time.
