Bio

I am a London-based conference interpreter and translator working with German and Polish. My profession is more than a day job to me, and I feel energised when I can solve my clients’ communication headaches. I firmly believe that everyone should have the freedom to express themselves in a language they feel at home with. I find it deeply satisfying when I succeed to convey a client’s written or spoken message to their target audience.

With a track record of over 10 years in the language industry, I am knowledgeable and well-networked. I often team-up with colleagues to deliver more complex projects. Working in international settings also means that I always stay curious, keep up with current affairs and maintain my interest in politics, history and international relations.

Being a freelancer allows me to get involved in a variety of stimulating projects. I am always open to new challenges and collaboration proposals. My experience and service offering includes:

• Conference interpreting (I am trained and experienced in both, the simultaneous and consecutive modes)
• Business interpreting (e. g. negotiations, factory visits, training)
• Public services interpreting (in legal, medical and social services settings)
• Legal interpreting (patent hearings)
• Sport interpreting (volunteer interpreter at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games)
• Translation (business, marketing, social media, reproductive medicine)
• Transcreation and copywriting (for social media)

I have also been involved in (and enjoyed) more unusual linguistic challenges like interpreting at a series of solo performances of a visual and performance artist, interviewing Polish gamers about their gaming habits in their homes and remote interpreting from my living room during a chefs congress taking place on the other side of the globe.
