I am a French native speaker with German roots and a deep knowledge of both France and Germany, their cultures, history and languages. After my studies in French and German Law (LL.M. obtained in 2012) and international Journalism (Master's obtained 2014), I started my career in smaller media companies in Germany before working for one of the biggest european multilingual media venture, Deutsche Welle. I have experience translating journalistic products, subtitles, technical and legal documents and providing localization know-how. I'm a fast learner and used to work on fast-paced projects.
