Overview

I have been working as a freelance translator (English to German), editor, author and technical writer since 1996. The main focus of the work of my editorial office "Punktum Verlags-Service" is on illustrated non-fiction books for children and young people on the subjects of nature, animals, science, technology, sports, history, computers, the internet and activities for children. On the other hand, textbooks, pedagogical literature, learning aids and learning games represent another central area. In addition, titles for adult readers from the hobby, leisure and travel book sections as well as guidebooks are also looked after. Advertising and technical documentation are further fields of activity.
