I was born in the German speaking part of Switzerland in 1970 where I lived and worked till my 30th.
After completing my commercial vocational training, I went on to study languages in England and France.
In Switzerland, I worked for a recruitment and selection agency and the marketing department of a
publishing company among others. I spent the winter of 1994 as a hostess of a tourist resort in the Maldives.
On my return to Switzerland, I took a Public Relations course and I worked for an international communications
agency in Zurich for a number of years. My passion for travelling, foreign languages and cultures led me
to Madagascar in 2000. This is where I crossed paths with a Dutchman, who made my heart beat faster. One year later,
I moved to Haarlem in the Netherlands, where I have been living ever since.
Naturally, I had to overcome all the usual language and cultural obstacles associated with moving to another country.
But I actually saw this as a fantastic challenge from which I have learnt a lot. I find Dutch a beautiful language.
I have enjoyed immersing myself into the study of it and have subsequently made my career out of it.
In 2004, I started working as a translator, Dutch-German. Through the years, a large international network of fellow translators, interpreters
and editors has grown around me. This formed the basis for the creation of Fundalingua. We are now a dynamic network of
freelance translators, interpreters and editors who are experts in the most diverse languages and areas of expertise.
The things that unite us are maximum flexibility and a passion for language. And of course, the internet because the 'www' is, after all,
our shared 'office'. So instead of expensive overheads, we offer you a dynamic and enthusiastic team of extremely motivated and highly
qualified language professionals.
