Copy-editor, copy-writer, translator.
Beyond all titles: human being, woman, mother.
(Preliminary) Target reached.
Today, as freelance copy-editor and translator, I deal with words all the time, in books, yearly
reports, advertising, catalogues, websites ...
During the five years I spent as scientific associate at the Institute for Agricultural Economics of the University of Hohenheim I was often concerned with written (and spoken) words: applying for external funds, writing scientific articles, proofing symposium reports/articles/speeches, translating articles and lecture materials, and reviewing for scientific journals.
The journey to reach this target.
From Ludwigsburg, Germany, via Cork (Ireland) to Africa.
Starting in Ludwigsburg, Germany, I moved to Fulda to study Nutrition and Food Business. A placement brought me to Dublin, Ireland. For my Bachelor thesis I moved to Cork (also Ireland) and added a Master in Rural Development, Food Marketing and Co-operative Organisation, travelling to Ethopia for my thesis.
Moving to South East Asia.
For my PhD in Agriculture I crossed the globe to reach the Philippines and evaluate, discuss, and write about Participatory
Evaluation of the Sustainability of Farming Systems.
Besides and in between I found or founded (and cherish) a family of my own.
