About Me


I obtained a Master of Arts degree in German, English and American Studies from the Humboldt-University Berlin (Summer 1999). My studies included
a one year stay at the University of Warwick/UK.

Since 2000 I have been working as a freelance translator for various translation agencies and direct clients.

Prices and Software


I usually work on a per word basis. My rates start at 0.12 per word (source language). The actual rate depends on different factors (field of expertise, volume, urgency, etc.) and is negotiable. For all other work (editing, proofreading, technical services) I charge an hourly rate starting at €35. My average capacity is 2,500 words per day. Depending on the complexity of the work this amount may vary.

I use SDL TRADOS Studio 2017, SDL TRADOS 2007, SDL Passolo, MemoQ 6.22 and higher, Translation Workspace, Xbench, etc.

I also work with cloud based translations tools as Smartling and MemSource.
