University degree in translation (Diplom-Übersetzer, FH)

Professional translator since April 2003

4 years experience as in-house translator for a leading translation agency in Cologne, Germany

Full-time freelancer since July 2007

I translated the Dutch book "Thuisbarista: kwaliteitskoffie uit eigen keuken" into German ("Barista aus Leidenschaft: Einzigartiger Kaffee aus der eigenen Küche") and also the Dutch book "Briljante Businessmodellen in Finance" into German ("Brillante Businessmodelle im Finanzwesen: Pioniere für ein verlässliches Bank- und Versicherungswesen").

Recently, I also translated the software for the app and mobile site of "Findmyshift" (employee scheduling software) from English into German.

I am usually available from Monday to Friday from 9am to 6pm (CET), but I also offer my availability at the weekend if necessary.

My daily output is between 1,500 and 2,000 words, depending on the text to be translated.
