About me

As a native German speaker I translate from English, French and Dutch into my native language. For a natural sound and flow of the text it’s essential that the translator has a native speaker command of the target language while understanding all the nuances of the source language.

Having spent two decades of my life in London, I recently returned to Cologne. During my studies I also spent long periods in France and the Netherlands. I have studied Spanish for several years and speak fluent Dutch alongside English and French close to mother tongue level. I often travel for business or pleasure and to keep abreast of developments in the countries where my working languages are spoken. I have a keen interest in literature and art in all its forms, cooking, nature, garden design and environment.

My network

I have a network of top professionals in translation, editing, copywriting, web design, advertising, illustration and photography.
