German-to-English Translator Berlin | San Francisco
ACADEMIC linguistics | social sciences | cultural studies
I earned my M.A. in Linguistics with a focus on social and applied linguistics. My academic translations unravel the underlying complexity and implications of culturally-based attitudes, perceptions and ideologies. Translation is a journey into the collective and singular mind of the author whose ideas consist of viewpoints, ideologies and norms that do not necessarily equate with the familiar ideas of native (monolingual) English speakers. My job is to elegantly and lucidly translate not only the words on the page, but also the underlying worlds those words reflect.
MARKETING tech | retail | luxury
Like memorable pop music, memorable marketing messages rely on enticing hooks. Crafting eloquent and memorable hooks takes strong writing chops and audience insight. As a native speaker of American English and long-time resident of the Bay Area, my insight into American markets and West Coast culture, specifically the tech industry, reaches far and wide.
Seasoned by expertise gained as an in-house translator at a top technical translation agency in Berlin, I am proficient at describing mechanical and automotive systems and processes to lay audiences and experts alike.
EDUCATION B.A. in German from the University of California, Berkeley M.A. in Linguistics & Literary Studies from Middlebury College in cooperation with Freie Universität, Berlin
