I am a Technical Translator (Diplom-Fachübersetzerin) and have been working as a freelance translator since 2006. From 2001 to 2007, I studied Technical Translation (Internationale Fachkommunikation) at the Institute of Applied Linguistics of the University of Hildesheim, Germany, and completed my academic studies with the German degree of a Diplom-Fachübersetzerin.

In my degree dissertation, I analysed the preservation of the entertaining function in literary translation on the basis of Terry Pratchett's fantasy novel "The Last Continent". In my work as a translator, I place particular emphasis on the translation of presuppositions as well as the localisation of background knowledge which is to be considered in both literary and technical translations.
