Qualifications

Translator Services:

I work on English-German translation, transcreation and localization projects.

Languages have always been my passion. I have had the privilege of studying many of them over the years. I understand how the right phrase or tone can influence a business correspondence or change the relationship with a client and am therefore always determined to translate every project as close to the source as possible while ensuring it sounds like an original.

Education

I got my Bachelor’s in linguistics (Russian, Portuguese) at the Albert-Ludwgis University in Freiburg, Germany followed by a Master’s degree in Eastern European Studies at the Freie University in Berlin, Germany. During my studies I was able to spend a semester abroad at the University of Macedonia in Thessaloniki, Greece. The main focus of my education was linguistics, culture, literature as well as economics.

Computer Equipment Used

I use MemoQ and am familiar with MemSource, Google (GTT), XTM, Trados and other tools…

Experience

I started my career started in Berlin, Germany and worked in recruiting, sales and hospitality. In 2016 I moved to Houston, TX, which lead me to my position at Translations Koll. My professional background includes engineering, energy, construction and staffing. Moreover, having worked in a German as well as US business context provided me with a broad understanding of business communication, legal administration and management techniques.
