In 1992, I passed my exam of a bilingual secretary for English and French and since then I have been able to gain practical experiences in different important companies.
Since 2003, I have been translating documents from my home office as a freelancer under my own company "translations4you".
In July 2006, I successfully passed my exam of a state-approved translator (German Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Dortmund).
In March 2009, I was authorised by the Court President of the Oberlandesgericht (Higher Regional Court) Hamm to notarise legal translations.
I am a member of the BDÜ (German association of translators and interpreters). BDÜ means quality, since members are required to prove evidence of their professional qualification before acceptance.
