ABOUT ME

Since 2012 I have been working as a freelance writer and translator. I have been working for international clients on various projects, including translations, editing as well as proofreading, transcreations and copywriting. I gained experience in the industry at two different translation agencies in Germany and China, for which I worked as a project manager for a total of four years.

The linguistic and cultural know-how in my working languages was not only acquired during long-term stays in the US and China, but also through a well-rounded academic education. As I learned my craft from the bottom up, mainly at:

  • Göttingen University in Germany (Double Degree M.A. Intercultural German Studies Germany-China)
  • Nanjing University in China (Double Degree M.A. Intercultural German Studies Germany-China)
  • The biggest training center worldwide for translators and interpreters at Mainz University in Germany (B.A. Applied Linguistics, Cultural Studies, Translation and Interpreting).

I topped up my translator’s education with a master in German studies. I grew up in Berlin where I’m currently living again… after a few rounds around the globe.

SERVICES

Your website, an important brochure, your commercial slogan, a German name for your newest product, the company newsletter…

Why should you entrust me with your project?

HOW I CAN SUPPORT YOUR COMPANY

SERVICE SCOPE

COPYWRITING

The text for your new leaflet should attract your customer? Your social media content needs a facelift? You are looking for a catchy slogan or fancy product name? Then get writing support from a professional copywriter, so that your product or service offers shine in the right light – linguistically!

TRANSLATION

When it comes to translations everything needs to be correct! Not only the content and language, the terminology as well and the text should be adapted to the target group and culture. Let a language expert take care of your translation and invest in quality, so that your message gets across to your clients.

LEARN MORE

EDITING

You are looking for someone who polishes your text, because it will be published? Or for someone who checks your translation for accuracy, since it is of high importance? Then get in touch with a professional. I am looking forward to help you with editing your texts, so that they are customer-ready.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM OUR COOPERATION

PERFORMANCE PROMISE

TRANSPARENCY

With me, you know you will get your money’s worth. For copywriting and translation requests, you will receive a comprehensible price quote based on the word count of your text or on an hourly rate. Contact me and, before we start, you receive a detailed quotation for your project ‒ free and unbinding.

PROFESSIONALISM

I am 100% capable in this field of work. For years, I have been working in this industry. What’s more, I actually hold a degree in translation from an accredited German university in contrast to many other freelancers. I ask the right questions and you can be certain that you are working with an expert.

COMMITMENT

I am committed to social causes and, as such, voluntarily translate for Translators without Borders, a charity that helps NGOs with translations. In order to become part of this international initiative, I had to pass a selection process. The organisation supports Médecins Sans Frontières, the Red Cross and many more.

DIRECT CONTACT

You don’t communicate with a project manager, but with me. This gives you the opportunity to pass your requirements directly to your writer, so that I can find the best solution for you. By working closely together, we ensure that your message is delivered according to your expectations.

NETWORK

You do not only require a translation in German, but also in Chinese delivered in your layout? Get in touch with me and I will provide you with a tailor-made service. I apply the same requirements in terms of quality to my colleagues as I do to myself, so that you can be sure to receive the best possible result.

CONFIDENTIALITY

The confidential handling of your documents is an obvious given in my profession. Rest assured that your sensitive data is protected with utmost care. You can count on me – or on the professional conduct code of Proz.com, the world’s largest translators’ network, that I have endorsed as a member.
