Christiane Focking, German Translator
My granddad used to say I was sure to “end up in economics”, but I much preferred studying languages and foreign countries.
It was only later that I found my granddad had been right – today I am a state certified translator specializing in economics, business and law. I also hold a degree in French studies.
My early professional experience was as assistant manager in international enterprises. In 2007 I started working for myself.
In between numerous periods spent abroad in France, Ireland, the USA and Hungary, I would always return to stay in the city of my birth, Berlin, where I live today.
