After my move to the UK in 2012 I started working as an in-house translator at Future Publishing in Bath. Initially I translated Future Publishing's numerous renowned gaming websites for a well-known German magazine's website.

Then I moved on to the exciting world of print media and specialised on Bookazines, i.e. one-off magazines about different topics. So I became an expert in researching various subjects and pride myself in always delivering high quality content for each topic.

A few years later I started my freelance venture and have since collaborated with different publishers in the UK and USA as well as in Germany and Denmark. Some recent examples of this work include:

Previously I also worked on regular knitting, crocheting and baking magazines as well as photography bookazines for Canon and Nikon DSLRs specifically.

Furthermore I have been regularly translating a high-end design magazine from Danish to German for over three years.

Languages: I have experience in translating magazines, bookazines and websites from English, Danish and Italian into German. I also speak Spanish and French but have not yet translated any projects in that language.

I love translating magazines and bookazines and find it fascinating how much you can learn about so many different things. At the same time it has always been my dream to work in book translations and I hope this might be a great way to gain some experience in that field and get started.

I am incredibly detail-oriented, work with a trusted and reliable proofreader and have never not met a deadline in my whole professional career. It would be so exciting to help you distribute your no doubt amazing work in a country and language that I know well and love.

If you would like to see PDFs of any of my recent works or if you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to contact me.

I look forward to working with you.
