About

Hi there!

I joined the TED Open Translation Project in April 2016 as a TED Translator and am part of the German team.

I studied translation and interpreting (specialization: economics and politics, technology), and I am lucky enough to be curious about pretty much everything. TED is a great way for me to use my translation skills, gain more experience and dive into many new interesting topics, concepts and ideas.
