I have always had a passion for language! Having lived in Germany for 19 years as a teenager and young adult, before moving on to university in London, UK , has given me a good grounding in both languages, though English remains what I would call my working language.
In my professional career I have worked on a number of projects in the general field of marketing, more specifically in medical and pharmaceutical market research translation from German to English. Other experiences relevant to my linguistic scope are in spa and hotel management as well as other hospitality related areas.
In my private life I am a keen follower of the arts and contemporary culture including fashion, music and cinema. In late 2005 my husband and I made the big move to New Zealand, where I am now based and feel it is imperative that I do not forget to mention a keen interest in organic vegetable gardening since then. Though my husband might disagree... :)
I am a communicative person and keen to avoid any deadline or quote related dramas by keeping an open mind, but also dedicating myself fully to the project.
Please feel free to send a complimentary test piece any time.
With kind regards,
