I am a professional English > German translator with a BA in Modern Languages and a Postgraduate Certificate in Conference Interpreting. Additionally, I have over 10 years experience as an International Sales Executive managing the EU distribution for a large US manufacturer of leisure goods. Having lived in the United Kingdom for over 10 years, I am not only bilingual, but truly bicultural.
This cultural and linguistic sensitivity enables me to translate texts to the highest standard. As a translator, my aim is to ensure that your text reads as naturally in German as it does in English. As an Interpreter, I will render your speech with a pleasant voice and tailored to your audience - while never missing a detail.
I am proactive, focused and will always try to make the translation process as smooth and efficient as possible.
Areas of expertise include environmental development, conservation and technology. I hold a Certificate in Natural Sciences and have a good understanding of scientific concepts as well as scientific language. Additionally, I have recently completed a Climate Reality Leadership Training on the topic of Climate Change under former US Vice President Al Gore. I have extensive up-to-date knowledge of key environmental issues and cutting-edge developments. Furthermore, I practice what I translate: I run a truly green translation business.
Business, Sales & Distribution:
With over 10 years of experience in building and maintaining European distribution networks, I understand the challenges and opportunities of marketing and selling products in German-speaking markets.
Sports continues to play a big part in my life: As a former dressage rider and today as an Icelandic Horse rider. Beyond the equestrian world, I am experienced in interpreting for large sports events, such as the EU Football Championships for TV channel Sky Sports.
Having worked for more than 7 years in a food related industry and with a special interest in nutrition, I regularly follow current studies, trends and ideas. I am a permanent translator for the United Nations World Food Programme. Other clients include Fire & Food Magazine, a renowned German publication.
