I worked as an in-house editor (English) and translator (English > German) at Booking.com for almost 10 years (3/2007 to 12/2016), where I translated and wrote tourism-related marketing texts for the Booking.com website. Dutch I learned from my housemates in a student household during an exchange semester at Tilburg University in the Netherlands. I deepend this knowledge in a summer school organised by the Dutch derparment of the University of Vienna on theoretical and practical aspects of translation.
In December 2016, I opted for independence and started as a freelance translator in January 2017. Holding a degree in Political Science and Art History from Vienna University and out of personal interest, I have since then been specialising in social sciences, art and culture, engineering and automotive, apart from marketing/tourism-related content.
My focus is on quality. German is a beautiful language, which, as a language of philosophy, science and world literature developed a unique richness with a broad stylistic distinction. It is my desire to make full use of this richness to convey your message to your target audience in an optimal, idiomatic way.
