I am an active member of the American Translators Association (ATA) and am currently the Administrator of the German Language Division. I am also a member of the Leadership Council of ATA’s Language Technology Division.

I was granted ATA’s Dynamo Award at the 64th Annual Conference in Miami, Florida. The ATA Dynamo Award recognizes a person or entity that has worked in a particularly energetic way to benefit ATA and/or the language professions.

I am a member of the Bundesverband der Dolmetscher und Übersetzer e. V. (BDÜ) (German Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators).

With members having to present evidence of their professional qualifications before they can attain full membership in these associations, you as a client have an additional safeguard when commissioning linguistic services. I am also a member of the following organizations:

■ SENSE (Society of English-language professionals in the Netherlands)
■ ITI Medical and Pharmaceutical Network
