I am a fully qualified translator, interpreter and proofreader for German and English, with 13 years experience. I offer translation and proofreading of business, marketing and travel related material, brochures, legal documents and certificates, questionnaires and general correspondence for businesses, agencies, government organisations and private customers.

In addition, I have experience interpreting in court, for the police, the council, at job centres and business meetings and I have gained valuable experience working in a variety of settings and with people from all walks of life. This means I can apply this insight when translating documents and make sure they are fit for purpose.

Furthermore I possess the DPSI (Diploma in Public Service Interpreting) and the IoLET Diploma in Translation. My specialised subjects for these were business and law.

I am also a Member of the North West Translators' Network and a Career Affiliate of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting and I strictly abide by their Code of Conduct

In November 2015 my entry "Title Colon Dictation" was commended in the Open Category of the Stephen Spender Prize.

My translation of Jessica Norries' "The Infinity Pool" - a thoughtful holiday novel with some crime and a love interest to round it off nicely - came out in June 2018.

I have previously worked in sales, market research and account management and I have four years' experience in these fields.

In my spare time I am a big fan of the great outdoors and also a keen cook. Originally I am from Austria and I still go back to visit frequently. Having lived in the UK for fourteen years now, I can confidently say that I feel truly at home in both cultures.
