Prior to becoming a freelance translator in 2006, I was employed for three years by a major translation company in Sheffield. During my time there I worked on a broad range of subjects, including IT, multimedia, tourism and marketing.
I use CAT tools and thorough research to ensure consistency and quality in all my translations. As I live in an English-speaking country, I have every opportunity to further improve my familiarity with idiomatic expressions and cultural references. At the same time, I still use German on an everyday basis in frequent contacts with German colleagues in the area.
I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists in London and took their Diploma in Translation in 2004 with a Distinction in all three papers.
