Bio
Connecting people and cultures with language is an integral part of my life.

Raised and educated in the U.S. in a multicultural, multilingual environment.
Developed an early fascination with language and communication and the ability to articulate thoughts in writing and speaking.

Moved to Switzerland, discovered intuitive capacity to absorb languages and difficult dialects. Held leadership positions in advertising and marketing managing international and pan-European business and brand building campaigns for 30 years.

Extensive business-related and personal travel - Europe, mid-East, N. Africa, N. America

All national advertising (and packaging) in Switzerland is executed in German, French and Italian (often also English). So along with my duties managing national and international accounts and clients in many countries, I found myself translating/adapting and editing and occasionally writing original copy.
Over the past 7 years that has been greatly expanded and enriched, and now have extensive experience translating, transcreating, writing copy and a great deal of proofreading and editing, particularly challenging text in industries ranging from technology to cosmetics and fashion.
My work includes (but is not limited to):
websites - from scratch based on German/English input and/or revising
brochures, flyers, interactive marketing material
advertising headlines and copy
legal documents and contracts
historical documents, including a 150 year old collection of recipes
literature
presentations/seminars - The ability to think in English and German in parallel enabled me to give presentations and speeches in both languages.

Over 25 years experience as a professional translator and copywriter, in diverse industries
Industry experience includes

Marketing, advertising, PR and corporate communications:
Travel/hospitality (Swissair, Swissotel)
B2B industrial engineering, power generation, green technology & management (ABB, Landis & Gyr),
Luxury goods (IWC, Jaeger Le Coultre, DeBeers, Bulgari)
Food (Kellogg's, Pepsi, Burger King,etc.)
Financial/insurance (Winterthur International, Credit Suisse and alternative finance in the U.S.),
Automotive (Ford, Smart), Webasto
Personal care and home products (Unilever, PartyLite)
Legal:
Contracts, industry agreements, court documents and legal forms.

Art, literature (book excerpts, articles), Marcus Pfister
Non profit (Claims Conference, JNF)
History - historical documents incl. old German; recently Point Alpha Memorial and Foundation website

An abiding passion for the ARTS (nurtured by a Viennese mother) is reflected in my study of art and ongoing engagement in design, and in visual and performing arts.

And now I'm a book translator: In 2012 and 2013 translated book by leading professor of marketing at Reutlingen University. Ambush Marketing in Sports by Gerd Nufer
Even got a nice mention in the intro.
