I was raised in West Vancouver, B.C., Canada. Many places have been home, including Germany where I lived for 14 years. My command of German is at the near-native level. English is my mother tongue. I enjoy languages and have a strong background in French and took classes in linguistics, Latin, and Swedish. I have taught English and German language courses at the university level and business English classes in German DAX companies.


I can offer you quality English translations of books and a range of documents. You will receive well-crafted texts that do not read like translations yet are true to the original and geared to your target audience. My goal is to assist you with your personal or professional translation requirements efficiently. I also offer editing services of English texts such as university papers.


I possess the qualifications, skills, and experience to handle your translations.

  • Qualifications: I was exposed to German at a young age and also took German in high school. I earned a B.A. (1st class honors German) from the University of British Columbia, an M.A. in German from the University of Toronto, and a translation degree (Diplom Übersetzerin) from the University of Mainz in Germersheim, Germany in English, German, and French.
  • Skills: My writing skills were developed during my university training and honed over the course of my career. I am detail-oriented, very organized, and possess staying power to find the right wording. Being accurate and thorough are very important to me. I favor quality over quantity and speed. Your documents will be given the time and consideration they require and will undergo a sound translation process which incorporates several review steps.
  • Experience: My translation career started 20 years ago in 2001 as the in-house translator at the Max Planck Society in Munich. Since 2009, I have been running my translation business in Ontario, Canada. Current and past clients include major companies in the automotive, banking, consulting, cosmetics, and energy sectors as well as government ministries, tourist attractions, SMEs, and universities.

Your documents will be handled confidentially by me only in my dedicated home office. My rates are comparatively reasonable.
