Born and raised in Manchester, UK, classical grammar school education. Living and working outside of the UK since 1974 – Belgium, Spain, France, and since 1980 residing permanently in Germany. More than 25 years of successful full-time freelance translations, mainly German-English, plus French-English and Spanish-English editing work as well as US-UK English localisations and other language-related services. My personal translation services are based on a wealth of hands-on life-long experience from having worked in numerous business sectors – banking, accounting, tourism, engineering, MBA business school (INSEAD, Fontainebleau, France), the hotel industry, and management consultancies. For a long time, my customer base has been strongly focussed on the executive search sector. However, enquiries from other business segments are welcome. I would also be glad to assist private individuals with their job application documentation (CV, employment contract, certificates of employment, recommendations, etc.)
