A Teacher turned Translator:
After twenty successful years as Head of German at a large independent school in London, I left my teaching job, qualified as a translator, and never looked back!

My previous career required the use of both languages on a daily basis. As a result, I never lost my native proficiency, despite being based in the UK. I maintain a large network of German-speaking contacts, both personal and professional, and travel regularly between the UK and my native country.

Client feedback:
Museum brochure:
We have worked with many translators recently, and Anke stood out as among the best. I was highly impressed with Anke's professionalism, quick turn around, and reliability while working on this project. Anke was always clear and concise during communications, and offered valuable support when needed. Notably, and without any prompting, she was considerate of the space constraints on our brochure, being careful to consider this in her translation. I highly recommend Anke without reservation, and am confident that you will find her work as excellent as we have. 

Poetry collection:
Anke proved herself to be an extremely thoughtful and intelligent translator of poetry, highly sensitive to nuance and to the subtle dilemmas which arise in such work, which she met with knowledge, imagination and flair. She is also unfailingly conscientious and reliable in all practical matters such as deadlines and proof-reading. I recommend her without hesitation.
