Service Description

I acquired my skills at translating and the accompanying general knowledge from the study books covering regional studies of Germany, Great Britain and USA as well as from high standard American, British, German and Swiss newspapers.
During my stay in the United Arab Emirates (2008 to 2010) I developed a keen interest in that region and with great enthusiasm I broadened my knowledge about the Gulf States and neighbouring countries. Becoming immersed iliterature from the Middle East and reading with great interest the regional newspapers I consolidated and enriched my language skills. My respect and understanding for the people living in that part of the world has been increased thanks to the many travels I have untertaken there. Having no professional experience in translating, I hope, I have succeeded in conveying an idea about the limits of my skills and in demonstrating my interests. Moreover, I am receptive to subjects as einvironmental protection, human rights and societal questions. My diploma of the chambre of commerce of Zürich allows me to work as proofreader in German.
