Hi, I'm Katharina
I'm German and am bilingual in German & English, and also speak fluent Swedish. By profession, I am a teacher and have taught English & German, plus Special Needs, at schools in Germany and Sweden, and have also taught basic Swedish in the SFI program.
I work currently as a professional-grade translator and proof reader for a number of international, internet-based translation companies as well as a mentor for translation students. Also, I have several years of experience as a translator/proof reader for a top German lifestyle magazine.
- professional, high quality translation from German into British or American English and from either style of English into German; translations from Swedish into English and German
- website & advertising copy advice & translation;
- assistance and/or representation at Trade Fairs, Exhibitions, and Presentations where English, German, and/or Swedish are necessary; I can help you by dealing with booking travel & accommodation, completing application forms for exhibitions and the like, and preparing leaflets and advertising.
In the future I'd like to develop an on-line Language Teaching Program which will be of interest to those who speak either English, German, or Swedish and are seeking to master one of the other languages. But there's more than just mastering the spoken tongue...
I have in-depth, first-hand knowledge of all three countries, having lived in all three. I know their culture, history, and bureaucracy. With me, you will not only learn the language to the desired level, but will also learn "how to..." and "how not to ..." embark on a new life or career in a strange country.
The courses will be online and specifically tailored to your needs, expectations, and level of competence at entry. There will be
one-to-one video conferencing, plus the opportunity to book an intensive weekend (or longer) of tuition.
Once you have finished learning, I will give you back-up & support - you can always drop me an email for advice, and I look forward to hearing how your new skill has benefited you!
ttfn (bet you don't know what that means!)
