Like many others, I achieved my dream of becoming a translator in a roundabout way. However, these detours did not only help me to grow personally, but also enable me to translate a wider range of texts competently. Thanks to my apprenticeship and studies, I have extensive knowledge to translate both fiction from different genres as well as academic and non-fiction works.
