LINGUISTIC PROFICIENCY

A native German speaker based in Berlin, I translate from English and Spanish into German.

English has been my primary language for the last four years while living, working, and studying in Ireland and the UK. All together, I have spent six years living in English-speaking countries, thus my English language proficiency is that of a native speaker.

I am also fluent in Spanish, polished by a number of long-term stays in Spain and Latin America.

  • Logistics: Translating & Proof-reading for a number of Berlin-based logistics companies.
  • Telecommunications / IT: I have been employed by a telecommunication company in Ireland for two years as a bilingual business analyst. I have studied technical translation modules as part of my Master’s degree.
  • Website Translation: I have written my Master’s dissertation on a real-life website translation project and have received an A for the dissertation (Copy available on request).

MY COMPETENCIES

  • Three-year translation experience between English and German (for both directions);
  • Extensive knowledge of Translation Theory;
  • excellent writing skills and passion for language and cultures;
  • In-depth subject knowledge in my specialisation areas;
  • Ability to problem-solve in an interdisciplinary context;

I have been a freelance translator and editor since 2008. Since 2011, I am translating full time.

In 2011, I successfully completed my Master’s degree in Translation and Interpreting Studies at Manchester University. In 2006, I completed my Bachelor’s degree in English language, linguistics, and culture, with history and media science as minors.

Prior to my Master’s education, I worked as an In-House translator and project coordinator with a translation agency in Germany.
