I am a native German speaker, who grew up in Frankfurt. Ever since I was a teenager I had a passion for the English
language. To improve my language skills outside of school I started reading English
literature and watch English TV. After my graduation I traveled and worked in
Australia for a year to get to know the culture and practice my English. After
returning to Germany, I studied Tourism and Event Management. During my studies
I visited Business English classes and interned with two renown Airlines in Marketing
and Corporate Communications, one of which took place in New York. Both
internships allowed me to use my English skills e.g. in translation tasks, as
well as working with my mother tongue German in a Marketing context. In
addition to that I spent a semester abroad in France, with all classes and
exams in English. During this time I also made a rather personal connection to
the English language, meeting my American husband. Due to this connection I
spent a lot of time in the past years in the US, where I now live. During and
after my studies I worked as a flight attendant for Lufthansa. This gave me the
opportunity to work on my English on a daily basis and introduce me to other
cultures. Furthermore, it showed me the importance of language in connecting
with people. To further develope myself, I then started to work in Marketing
for an international hotel chain in Germany. I was confronted with English on a
daily basis and translated e.g. websites, restaurant menus, marketing material
and contracts. Perfect German language skills were obviously necessary as well to
produce and proof-read marketing material. Now, I want to take it a step further
and make my passion for language my job.

Over the years I have developed an independant, reliable and
precise work ethic
. My goal is to help people and companies with my translation
work and connect them. Friends and relatives appreciate me as their contact for
translating and proof-reading works
. Since my late teenage years I have worked
in the service industry, which is why I am distinctively service-oriented.

My interests are the Airline and Hotel Industry, Tourism and
Traveling, Marketing, History and Event Management
(weddings in particular). I
am open towards new topics as well.

Other than English, I am working on my rusty Spanish and
French skills, with the long-term goal to be able to offer reliable translation
work in these languages as well. A new language I recently started working on additionally
is Greek.
