Do you need an interpreter for a conference, a seminar, a TV programme or any other event? I specialise in the art of conference interpreting in German and English (simultaneous, consecutive, chuchotage and liaison interpreting). I can also put together full teams of interpreters for conferences.


Whether you need a precise and elegant translation of a presentation, press release, website, product information or other publication – rest assured that your German, English and Spanish texts are in excellent hands with me. Do you need a translation in a different area of expertise or language? Then you can also rely on me and my comprehensive network of highly competent colleagues.

You are not sure whether your own texts are fully coherent? Contact me if you want to have your German or English texts thoroughly checked by a second pair of eyes (coherence, spelling, syntax, etc.).
