Ms. Dormann always manages to translate our – often complicated – texts from the fields of fashion, philosophy and art into English, using the right tonality and authentically getting across metaphors and original quotes from German.

Sonja Dormann, German Translator and Proofreader
Many people find out early on in their lives what special talent they were endowed with. I am no different – and my talent has always been languages. I was able to read at the age of 4; at 11, I began to write my diary in English, which I was just starting to learn; and in high school I was known for writing German essays with the most accurate spelling and for burying myself in English and French dictionaries during breaks. And the fascination has never worn off! I am still thrilled to be able to surround myself with language(s) every day – both professionally and in my free time, where I am an avid listener, reader and viewer of anglophone and francophone music, podcasts, literature, films and series.
My love of all things English and French as well as my constant striving for linguistic accuracy predestine me for the profession of a German translator and proofreader. My dream job!
