French to German proofreading
I was born in the beautiful Tauber valley on April 13th, 1983, and moved to Germersheim in 2002, where I studied Translation at FTSK Germersheim, the department for Applied Linguistics and Cultural Studies of the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz.
Towards the end of my studies, I accepted an internship with IBM Germany in Frankfurt/Main in the winter term 2009, where I did translations for the „European Consolidating Project“ from April to September 2009 on site as well as from home.
Already during this internship and afterwards I have been working as a freelance translator and established my business in January 2010 in Germersheim, where I still live now.
From September 2010 to September 2011, I also worked as a customer care agent with Ricambi Weiss, a motorcycle pieces and accessories reseller who has customer all over Europe, whereas I was on the hand responsible for all French-speaking customers mainly located in France, Belgium and Switzerland as well as for Spanish-speaking customers.
I kept up with my freelance translations during that time, though, as translating has been my passion since I started to study and always have taken a great interest in foreign languages and cultures. This passion also led me to doing a one-month internship with the “Mémorial de Caen“ in Normandy in 2004 as well as to spending 6 months in Salamanca, Spain, within the frame of the Erasmus program.
Apart from my work, I use also my spare time to get into touch with other cultures that you can find galore even in a small place like Germersheim, but I also enjoy, whenever possible, traveling to learn more about other people and their way of living.
