My background


I studied translating and interpreting in Leipzig, Lyon, Geneva and Toulouse and hold a Masters degree in "Translating and Interpreting with Multimedia" from the Institute for Translating and Interpreting of the University of Toulouse.

Professional Experience

Following my studies, I came to Paris where I was appointed as translator, proof-reader and quality control manager for German translation at Datawords, a large translation and localisation agency. Datawords works first and foremost with reputed brands in the luxury watch-making industry as well as in luxury fashion and cosmetics – this gave me the opportunity to put my skills to use for a number of discerning clients.

In addition to this work, I have also established myself as a freelance translator and have already delivered a number of language services such as localising websites or translating marketing texts, press and media releases, instruction manuals and much more from English, French and Spanish into German.
