-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As this summary shows, I work mainly on legal and finance topics now, but my University degrees are in Philosophy and Philology (English and Romance Languages/Literature), and I have worked as a journalist.

Apart from my own research, I have translated hundreds of articles, e.g., for Harvard Business Manager/Manager Magazin and many books (all nonfiction, list below) on topics like philosophy, art, architecture, history etc. as well as management and economics – target languages: German and US English.

I see my particular strength in the fact that my translations are “handmade” with a background of solid knowledge of Europe´s history of ideas – plus Internet research and my database, built in more than three decades in the profession, two of them working for supranational banks and banking supervision. Inhouse work at the EIB and at the ECB with their software.
