Overview

I am a freelance translator for German and English. German is my native language. I have translated several books for German publishing houses and I have written one myself.
As I studied music, I am interested in all that concerns (mainly classical) music.
As I am a hobby-dressmaker and sew some of my own clothes, I am interested in fashion.
I practiced Aikido for several years; I have done some dancing; I am interested in theater and in painting.
Having little time for all these hobbies, I am always happy to translate books in these fields.
