Born in 1975, in this section, I could write a book... As I certainly do not want to bore you, here just some quick facts:

  • 1997 graduated from Institut für Fremdsprachen und Auslandskunde bei der Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, degrees: State Approved Translator and Interpreter of the English Language, State Approved Translator of the French Language (special subject: the humanities)

  • 1 year assistant German teacher at a boarding school in Colwyn Bay, Wales

  • 1 year various jobs in Paris and Lyon, France, as well as Neuchatel, Switzerland

  • 1999 moved to Berlin, five years employed in sales and marketing in the IT sector

  • 11 years owner of the translation agency sander's agentur

  • 2004 sworn-in at the Regional Court of Berlin

  • upon opening of the translations agency in 2003, immediately hired my most important employee: Norwich Terrier Dusty, who never left my side for almost 15 years

  • 2006 birth of Sophie-Charlotte, world's best daughter 

  • 2015 completed three degrees while working full time: alternative veterinary practitioner, animal physiotherapist, animal psychologist

  • 3 years co-owner of a practice for animal physiotherapy in Berlin Friedrichshain

  • lecturer  for animal physiotherapy

Having worked as a full-time translator for 11 years, I was able to gather experience in many different special subjects. My favourite has, however, always been medicine. Maybe also because I spent almost 20 years with a physician who always allowed me to pick his brains. Thank you Michael! :-)

I worked for a great variety of customers including some renowned Berlin-based clinical centres (research funding, abstracts, posters, clinical trials, etc.), companies in the IT-sector (web pages, marketing), Berlin courts, the criminal investigation department, various artists (painters and musicians mainly, exhibition catalogues, web pages), I subtitled two American sitcoms and last but not least I worked a great deal for private customers who needed certified translations of documents and deeds (birth certificates, marriage certificates, certificates of no impediment, etc.). 

Parallel to translating I stared writing texts and proofreading. I am always happy to provide texts that are related to animal keeping and animal health. At the moment I am writing articles for a dog magazine. :-)

This year a new colleague stepped into my life: Norwich Terrier Paddy. He is responsible for the following important tasks: improving climate in the workplace, official food taster, security checks and customer service. So here we are, sharing an office in Berlin Friedrichshain, waiting for your orders.
