You can easily catch a glimpse of that passion by visiting tedTalks at www.ted.com, where I translated many exciting scripts for German speaking audiences. In my day job I have translated legal, financial, marketing and tax related texts, as well as official correspondence between the company I work for and German speaking tax authorities to and from German and English for the last three years.
I would be excited to share my skills and experience with anybody who requires some solid German to English translation

Summary: Being a workaholic 1 job was never enough for me. So during my studies I gained valuable insights into work life by temping in various roles, most prominently in opinion surveying for market research. After I concluded my master degree, I worked in Germany in the insurance sector. In 2005 I made my dream come true by emigrating to Ireland and working in an English speaking call centre. As I wanted to adequately employ the skills I learned during my studies, I decided to qualify in translation. Since 2009, I have been employed as a translator.
