Who I am and what I do

Based in the beautiful Hanseatic City of Bremen, I have been a full-time freelance translator and transcreator since 2013.


I have successfully helped clients from the English-speaking countries communicate in accurate and effective German since 1995.

Just like many competent entrepreneurs, I have a can-do attitude and this means I am able to tackle challenges.

As a language nerd, my great passion is to help you grow your business by providing you with German wow-factor texts—texts that are clearly and convincingly written, linguistically and culturally adapted to your target audience.

What else might be of interest to you?

My second area of expertise—TravelTourismHospitality—was born out of my passion for traveling, foreign countries and cultures, flora and fauna, picturesque landscapes, and exciting cities.

Apart from translating and transcreating, I enjoy attending professional development events (translation-, marketing-, travel-, tourism-, and hospitality-related), reading (in English and German: quality newspapers, guidebooks, marketing and advertising magazines, books about foreign countries and cultures), cooking, photographing, hiking and biking in the close-by recreation areas, and traveling.
