Overview

A German native speaker with a BA in English and German translation, literature and linguistics, based in Essen, Germany. Currently pursuing my MA.

My interest in languages and literature began at the age of 16, when, while still at high school, I started attending university lectures and seminars in English, which I continued for five semesters. After I graduated from high school with the best grade possible (1.0), I officially enrolled at university for a BA degree in English and German literature, linguistics, culture and translation,...

Service Description

I offer German to English and English to German translations, as well as proofreading, editing, and content writing. I have basic SEO skills.

For two years, I have worked as a freelance translator and content writer, dealing with a very broad range of topics, including (mobile/computer) software and apps, academic writing, art, literature, history, music, popular culture, psychology, medicine, food and drink, love and relationship advice, everything internet-related and more. Since I am interested in a very wide range of topics, I can easily adapt to any subject and style. I personally am especially keen on philosophy, literature, history, music, anything related to mobile software/apps and internet, but am always willing and ambitious to read closer into any topic.

My academical background crucially influences the way I work. Thanks to my linguistic studies, I am well versed (and interested) in grammar, punctuation, semantics, syntax and pragmatics, whereas my literary studies have enabled me with a sense for the beauty of language and a profound understanding that a text is more than just the sum of its words. I hope and try to combine these skills in my translations and texts, finding a good balance between linguistic exactness and stylistic aesthetics.

Since I have also given private lessons in English, German and Latin to high school students of all ages for several years, I am also able to do small tutoring and teaching jobs.
