Bio
I am a professional linguist and editor native to the German language with native-like fluency of English. I obtained my BA Hons Combined Arts (Major European Studies, Minor History) at the University of Ulster, Coleraine, Northern Ireland and am presently in the process of completing my MA in Applied Linguistics and Education with the Open University, Belfast, Northern Ireland.

I have been translating, proof-reading, transcribing, editing and interpreting in various subject fields including History, Archaeology, Literature and Poetry, Government and Politics, International Relations, Economics, Linguistics, Education, Social Science and Philosophy for 7 years.

Furthermore, I have been working as a translator and editor for my long-term client, Hanna Consultation Services Ltd, for the past 4 years. Hanna Consultation is a business and finance as well as IT consultation enterprise. My work for Hanna involves the translation of financial documents into GB English and editorial work for Hanna's own documents and annual reports.

At present, I am engaged in the Karl May Translation Project with the Karl May Foundation and Nemsi Books, translating and proof-reading the 3 volumes of a socio-economic fiction set in colonized Egypt from late 19th century German to late 19th century British English.

Throughout my course of employment with the UNESCO, the Regional Museum Grevesmuehlen and the York Archaeological Trust, I have been involved in various historical and socio-political projects including the transcription of audio/ video material and their translation into either German or English. Additionally, I have a good command of the Yiddish language as spoken in the Central European regions.
