Junior Translator


I joined AST in April 2019, having completed a degree in English and German from the University of Nottingham. Translating from German into English, I love how translation draws on my degree and combines my passion for both languages. I enjoy translating a wide variety of texts and appreciate the nuances of translation and the importance of tone, purpose and audience.
During my year abroad, I studied at the Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen and also played in the Süd-West Regionalliga for the Metzingen-Tübingen Badminton team. Badminton has been a long-standing hobby of mine, but I am also currently enjoying trying new things. I am a keen new addition to AST’s choir and running club and am also learning French in my spare time.
