Anna-Maria has been freelance translating since 1997, after receiving the Diploma in Translation from the Institute of Linguists, London. When she is not behind the PC, you may find her reading at the beach, browsing through travel picture books or tasting wine, and Anna-Maria will tell you: “I’m working…, collecting words!”? And that has always been the inspiration at the heart of her work: to connect the craft and enthusiasm for word-smithery with expanding her horizon in other fascinating fields like tourism, psychology, oenology or children’s literature?
The result is eminent in her translations for Hilton, Marriott and Kempinski Hotels, TAG Heuer, Rolex, Gallo Wines, Howard Park Winery or Parragon Publishing. Imagine how proud she was to find her translation of a bible for children to be No. 1 on the best-selling list for religious books of the Weltbild publishing group in July – before the memoirs of the Pope!
She regularly translates from English to German and French to German and sometimes from Spanish to German.
