For almost two years I have worked as a Freelance Translator and Content Writer in my native German language as well as in English. Before that I worked in a busy Contact Centre also using both languages. There I gained valuable insights into the day to day dealings with customers. Through my recent work, and also by having to negotiate and evaluate all kinds of bilingual situations from bringing up children bilingually to interpreting for German tourists and co-ordinating events, I can draw on a wealth of cultural experiences and have gained an acute meta-lingual awareness. I speak English and German to C2 level.
As a Freelancer I am working for a bilingual language e-commerce site. In that context I gained an understanding of SEO and AdWords. I translate or write keyword optimised texts and create corresponding Meta tags. My work is more often than not delivered via Google Drive. Other technological equipment and programs includes Apple MAC, MS Excel and Word as well as Linux based systems. As CAT tool I use MateCat.
I enjoy working in a team although as a Freelancer I work mostly on my own. I am used to researching thoroughly the subjects for the content I write because possible mistakes in my texts could have negative legal or financial implications for my clients. My information sources include anything from scientific articles to websites and videos.
I am a member of the Deutscher Verband der freien Übersetzer und Dolmetscher e.V. and comply with their professional standards.
