Bio

Image result for cultural similarities between us and ukBRITISH MANNERS MEET AMERICAN ENTHUSIASM!


I'm a bicultural linguist with a knack for detecting the nuances within the English language as expressed by British people and Americans.  I have spent half of my life in each country, the first half in Britain and the next in the USA. Most of that time I've lived in the vibrant city of Chicago.

I am embarking on a second career as a German to English (UK & US) translator, revisiting my linguistic roots which were nurtured at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland. Nearly 20 years as a social worker engaging with families from varied cultural backgrounds created expertise in cross-cultural communication and reading between the lines. An avid poet, creative thinker and travel blogger (www.europious.org), I write this new chapter keenly and with care.

Tourism, marketing, business, social science, healthcare and wellness, and news media projects pair with my educational background and prior experience

Keywords: British English, US English, American English, English UK, English Native Speaker, German, Social Science, Psychology, Healthcare, Tourism, Travel, Healthcare, Fitness, Wellness, Human Resources, Business, E-Commerce, Text, Translation, Proofreading, Checking, Cultural competence, Bicultural.
