Memberships

I am an active member of the American Translators Association (ATA) and 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


Volunteer activities

I am the co-organizer of the Translators' and Interpreters' Stammtisch in Aachen and the European Coordinator of the American Translators Association’s German Language Division (GLD). Read my column “(Translation) Notes from the Homeland” in the GLD newsletter interaktiv.
