I am an ATA certified translator from German into English with a Master's Degree in Applied Mathematics from the University of Michigan. After a career in software engineering I transitioned to being a translator to allow a more flexible lifestyle. My initial entry into this field was as an interpreter at World Cup events in 2001. I translate everything from books to legal documents to manuals. Most of my translation work is concentrated in the software, medical and movie industry, although the book topics have ranged from cooking to business.
