Profile

As a freelance editor, I edit and proofread fiction and non-fiction books, academic publications, advertising copy, catalogues and exhibition texts and many other types of text.

A master’s degree in German and Romance studies combined with a postgraduate master’s degree in theatre studies with a major in film, as well as many years’ experience at the Prussian Heritage Foundation, Berlin, have given me profound knowledge of the fields of art, culture and publishing.

Furthermore, I have been translating from English and French into German for over 15 years, with a focus on the fields of culture, art, design, travel, history and politics.

Periods spent abroad as a school pupil and later as a student formed the initial foundation of my foreign language skills, which I constantly refresh. I keep myself up to date by reading relevant literature and I regularly visit exhibitions in Germany and abroad.

I am a member of the Association of Freelance Editors (Verband der freien Lektorinnen und Lektoren - VFLL), the Association of German-Language Translators (Verband der deutschsprachigen Literaturübersetzer - VdÜ) and Women in Publishing (Bücherfrauen).

I have acquired the certificate „Freies Lektorat ADB“ of the Akademie des Deutschen Buchhandels.
