Hi, I'm Belinda
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me today!
Growing up in a bilingual environment, I've always been fascinated by language and other cultures. The way I connect with people is often through talking about their home country, native language or favourite travel destinations. Having lived and worked in Germany, the USA, the UK and Singapore, I've learned so much about the way people do business in different countries.
I developed a keen interest in advertising and TV commercials as a child, so studying marketing modules in school and uni further down the road became a
no-brainer for me. Today I love that I get to support brands in transporting their marketing message to German and English-speaking nations!
Click through the below slideshow to learn more about my journey, and how my skills and education can work for your business:
I grew up bilingually with German and English in Bavaria, Germany. In school, I always loved languages and economics. In 2011, I graduated with the German Abitur (European Baccalaureate).
After that, I went on to pursue a language and business diploma course to become a 'Multilingual Management Assistant'. I learned an array of translation and corporate communication skills alongside business and IT-related subjects.
In 2017, I graduated from Preston, England, with a Master's degree in Intercultural Business Communication.
I believe that you never stop learning. To provide my clients with the best possible service, I value education in school, uni and – most importantly – in life in general.
Here's a list of degrees and certificates relevant to my work as a marketing translator and transcreator:
Certificate in Translation (CertTrans) for English – German, 2023
Regular CPD with the Chartered Institute of Linguists, since 2020
Master's in Intercultural Business Communication from the University of Central Lancashire in Preston, England, 2016
Multilingual Management Assistant diploma from the Europa-Institut in Reutlingen, Germany, 2013
