+ about my background and soft skill assets

  • I have lived in Germany, Canada and different regions of Spain.
  • Throughout my entire professional life, I have cooperated with people from different cultural backgrounds (and enjoyed it!).
  • I am aware of differences in culture and values, and how they affect language use.
  • Instructor for cross-cultural management courses at the University of Zaragoza, Spain.
  • Sound organizational skills.
  • Able to deliver accurate work under pressure and tight deadlines, but…
  • …as a specialized English and German into Spanish translation professional, I do not take on more work than I am able to deal with. That is why I don’t miss deadlines!
