My name is Jessica Glanz (MA, DipTrans) and I am an experienced
freelance translator, copy-editor, and proofreader. I am a native
English speaker who grew up in the Netherlands and Switzerland, becoming
fluent in both Dutch and German whilst immersed in the local culture. I
now live and work in Berlin.
I hold a Diploma in Translation from the Chartered Institute of
Linguists, on which I gained a merit for the Literature paper and a
distinction for the Social Sciences option. In 2008, I completed an
Editorial and Proofreading course at the London School of Publishing,
and I have used these skills extensively throughout my career.
Prior to starting work as a freelance translator, I worked in the
publishing sector, academic administration, and the civil service. I
studied English Literature and Archaeology at Cardiff University for my
BA, and did an MA in Medieval Archaeology at the University of York.
My professional specialisms are heritage, tourism, arts, and culture.
