For the communication scientist Paul Watzlawick, reality is what we make of it. Is the glass half-full or half-empty? It depends on the observer because everyone is the designer of his own reality.
As a child of two cultures, I have acquired a perfect command of two native languages and thus also a passion for languages. After a one-year stay abroad in Italy, I started my Romance and German Studies at the Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf, including an additional qualification German as a Foreign Language. My main languages were French, Italian and German, but also some Spanish and Portuguese.
In order to also be able to do translations of commercial texts, I decided to take the examination for a state-certified translator at the Chamber of Industry and Commerce. On this basis, I founded Translanguage in 1997 and established a freelancer pool to offer local and Germany-wide language solutions from a single source. With this baggage, I moved to Switzerland in 2011 – nearby yet very special. Finance, insurance, telecommunications, tourism and above all Swiss German and Swiss French – these were the new challenges. Since then, several very intensive and exciting years have passed and I am very pleased to be able to offer this colourful portfolio in which I now specialise.
I can now look back on more than 25 years of experience in the field of specialist translations, proof-reading, textual conception, corporate communication and language training. With great clients from numerous industries including one-man businesses, SMEs as well as international corporations.
And perhaps you will soon belong to my client base?
I will gladly help you to create your textual realities – in various languages, appropriate to the media, situation and reader – with understanding, finesse and enjoyment.
