I'm Catherine. My mother tongue is English, and my second native language is German. I grew up in Germany from the age of 5, which makes me about as bilingual as they come. :)
My primary and secondary education until the age of 16 all took place in German schools in the Frankfurt area. My further education (A levels and University) took place in the UK.
I have a BA Joint Hons in German and Spanish from the University of Manchester and from September 2017 I will be commencing an MA in Translation Studies. Translation modules were also a core part of my 4 year Bachelors Degree, instructing on different translation techniques and equipping me with a solid foundation for translating a variety of different text genres.
Furthermore, I am in the process of learning how to use SDL Trados 2017 and will be taking an SDL Certification in the next few weeks. Thereafter I will be available to offer my bilingual language expertise for translation using a CAT tool.
I am offering Marketing and Media as an area of expertise, as I have nearly 6 years experience of working within the London media communications industry, particularly within digital media. Please see my Linked In profile for further details of my work experience.
I look forward to hearing from you.
