About me

Do you want to reach new German-speaking markets?

  • Have you got questions about localisation or translation?
  • Would you like to have the peace of mind of knowing that your creative translations are in safe hands?
  • Do you need a professional translator or translation project manager?

I am here to help.

My background? I am an English<>German translator and localisation project manager with a translation degree from the University of Applied Sciences in Cologne, Germany, and with more than 20 years of localisation experience. I am also a Chartered Linguist and a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL) and the German Interpreters and Translators’ Association Bundesverband der Dolmetscher und Übersetzer (BDÜ).

I have worked on a wide variety of projects and materials, including the transcreation of straplines, translation of marketing collaterals, non-fiction books, web content, user manuals, on-line help, software strings, audio scripts etc. from English to German and German to English, and I have managed complex translation projects for up to 60 target languages.

Originally from the far north of Germany, I now live and work in Oxfordshire, UK.
When I am not busy translating I can usually be found in a glider – either as an instructor and cross-country coach at my gliding club or competing as a member of the British Gliding Team – most recently at the Women’s World Gliding Championships at Lake Keepit, Australia.

Please e-mail me or send me a LinkedIn message if you would like to discuss your translation needs.
