Welcome to go-german!

As a trained teacher with two degrees in German language studies and educational science, I have had the pleasure to work at various schools in Germany and have provided private language tuition for every age group for 20 years.

When I moved to Norway in 2014, I decided to expand my field and founded my own company, offering translation services from English to German as well as proofreading and editing. My experience ranges from novels, guidebooks and magazines to websites, online shops, business plans and SEO articles.

If you would like to find out more, please get in contact and I will reply to you within 24 hours.
