Since 1998 I am active as a freelance translator located in Berlin, Germany, specializing in English <> German translations of literary works for German publishers and private clients.

Since then I have translated more than two dozen literary works, mostly non-fictional, in fields such as politics, economy, psychology, philosophy, history, established and alternative sciences, industry design and education. This includes four works translated from German to English.

Aside from my activities for German publishers, I regularly collaborate with translation and media agencies in Germany, Europe and the USA in the fields media, marketing, business, science and politics.
