Bio
I moved to the UK in 1992, after completing my university degree in psychology at TU Berlin, and returned to Berlin in 2010.

For the last 18 years, I have been involved in the linguistic world in various roles. First as a language trainer for executives in the City of London followed by postgraduate studies in translation at the City University (Diploma in Translation, IoL 1996).

EXPERIENCE
My translation experience comprises software localisation such as my contribution to the German version of Douglas Adams' SciFi-computer game "Starship Titanic", which was interesting and a lot of fun.

Various other assignments were from the world of transcreation, ie. effective ways of advertising and marketing products in another language and culture.


SPECIALISATION
For many years, I worked in finance as a translator for a German bank producing weekly reports on the bond markets and translating investment research about companies listed in the high yield sector such as telecoms, renewable energies, innovative packaging, chemical companies, directory services etc.

What's more, knowledge from a previous occupation in horticulture has led me to translate materials about the plant world, horticulture and gardening literature.
