Bio
Welcome to my profile page! Herzlich willkommen auf meiner ProZ.com-Seite!

About me
I am a native Austrian currently based in the UK. After completing my university degree, I got "stuck" in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, where I have been working as a full-time freelance translator since 2005.

Professional Language Services
