In 2001, she went travelling for a year with her partner and two children, translating her way through Asia, Australia and the North and South American continents. Getting a taste for the art of truly global localisation, she based herself in New Zealand where she is taking advantage of the sun and the time difference – she now works whilst her European and North American clients sleep and delivers when they get up.
She translates mainly from English into German.
Her areas of expertise are IT-related material, hardware, telecommunications, online learning, software license agreements, computer games, and – her love and joy – educational software for children. On her to-do list is still the translation of a travel book and a book on Middle Eastern dance.
