I graduated with an MA in Modern Languages, English, Scandinavian and Spanish Studies in 1992 at the University of Saarbrücken in Germany. While studying I spent terms in the UK and in Spain and after graduating I was employed at a Danish construction and design company in Northern Germany and Copenhagen as in interpreter/translator. At the same time I began with freelance work from German to English.
During my 16 year spell (from 2004 to 2020) at a German global automotive company I was responsible for international suppliers and wholesale customers. I thus acquired considerable and broad experience in in-house translating across a number of general subject matters and specific expertise in the automotive
and logistics fields.
As of this year I have decided to pursue a career in freelance translating.
