Literary translation


From any early age I was what is known as a “bookworm”. Week after week, I avidly read new stories, adventures, and novels. Is there anything better than entirely immersing yourself in a story, diving into a book, completely forgetting about the world around you?


When the time came to choose a profession, it was my love for languages that won out – I became a translator. As such I have been translating various texts from English and Spanish into German for more than nine years. Never having lost my passion for reading, I would love to translate books.


Apart from my general love of literature, I am fascinated by the act of translating – I love to work with texts, interpret them in the source language, capture their structure, and then use my skills as a professional translator to transfer a piece of writing into another language and make it accessible to the target audience. In this I place importance on delivering a correct text with impeccable terminology, orthography and grammar that reflects both its purpose and the needs of the audience. I want to use translation to convey what I feel when reading to others.
