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.
