About me
My name is Tanja Ekkert, I was born in Tomsk, Russia in 1978. My family moved to Stuttgart, Germany in 1990. I completed my Abitur (A-levels) in 1998 and enrolled in the Cologne University of Applied Sciences where I commenced Translation studies and majored in business and legal fields for the languages English and Spanish with a final mark of 1.8. During my studies I also completed an internship in a dubbing agency where my main responsibility was to translate dialogue scripts into German and went abroad to live and study in Soria, Spain for one year.
I moved to Dublin, Ireland in 2006 and I was able to gather professional experience with various different companies.
Translation has always been part of my work with all those companies as my employer was happy to utilize my knowledge of foreign languages and my translation experience. Types of documents I was asked to translate included surveys, technical manuals, marketing material, FAQs, training manuals and advertising material.
In 2012 I decided to become a freelance translator and finally to work full time in a profession I trained for.
My goal as a translator is always to compose a target text that conveys the source text's original message as completely as possible but at the same time does not read as a translation but as an original text in its own right.
