This is really ‘about me’, as I am the only person who works for my freelance company. I am based above the roofs of Kiel, in an old building on the edge of the city centre; just far enough out for the woods behind the house give a touch of countryside and to be able to see the cranes on the fjord in the distance.
Behind the old façade with its divided windows, there is an office on the third floor full of books, computers, printers and telephones and a large desk. I have worked at this desk for more than ten years, editing, proof-reading, producing catalogues and in project management, translating specialist medical texts and books from English into German and writing articles as a medical journalist.
