Bio
Being a native German speaker, I completed my studies as a foreign language correspondent for German, English and French (“Staatlich geprüfte Fremdsprachenkorrespondentin in Englisch, mit Zweitsprache Französisch”) in 1990.

In 2006, my love for foreign languages and passion for finding "the right" phrase drove me to start full time as a freelance translator, interpreter and tutor for English.

I have since been working successfully in mainly (but not only) the following fields:

Translating/ Proofreading

> Environmental
(NGO campaign content, governmental website/ printed content)
>> ENG>GER translator for 350.org .
> Marketing/ Promotional/ Surveys/ Websites
> TV documentaries
(history, zoology & botany, technical)
> Trade Union / EU matters (restructuring/digitalisation, information & consultation, organisational, minutes etc.)
> Enology (website, marketing and scientific content)
> Tourism (travel magazines, sightseeing info)
> Fashion (website content, advertisement, store info)
> Technical (manuals, catalogues)
> Logistics (surveys, contracts, customer mailings)
> Medical/ Health Care (patient info, product descriptions, surveys)
> Literature & Poetry/ Lyrics
(currently working on volume 1 of a multi-volume novel – genre: fantasy/magical/medieval)

Interpreting

> Interviewing of eye/ time witnesses of WWII
> Discussions with authorities regarding permits for archeological/ forensic excavations


From 1991 - 2006, I made a carreer in responsible positions with various international companies, gaining a deep insight and more than 15 years’ experience in the fields of

> Import / Export
> Logistics & Customs
> Office Equipment
> Micrographics
> Automobile Industry
> and the Medical / Biological / Zoological Sector

along with the related terminology.

I further enjoy a sound family background in botany and have a strong personal interest in environmental & animal welfare issues, NGOs, medieval life & art/crafts, Scottish and Irish Celtic history.

In German we say "Man lernt nie aus!" ("There's always more to learn!") - a true word. Therefore, I'm always open to learning about subjects/ terminology new to me and can guarantee thorough research for any project I'm entrusted with.
