PROFILE

I am a fully bilingual native speaker German/English with a German passport who
spent most of her professional life in London. I have extensive translation
experience in both directions and am dual native speaker.

As a published English language
author (HarperCollins UK) and translator with German publishing houses, I
specialise in fiction and non-fiction at the most challenging levels.

I also have extensive experience with
commercial translations with very high volumes, mostly in the field of psychology,
marketing, environment and finance.

I love translating every day.
