Already in school days I took over the role of a translator for my parents during our holidays in France due to my good knowledge of French. There appeared my great and everlasting passion for foreign cultures and their languages.
When I was young, I came across the Portuguese language, which I quickly gained access to and learnt in Brazil after finishing school. After the three months I spent there, I had the big dream of studying this language and culture.
10/2010-01/2014 I studied Portuguese (BRA) at the University of Hamburg.
Especially during my two semesters abroad in São Paulo, I took courses and seminars in: Translation techniques, commented translation and literary translation with prestigious professors and translators such as Dr. Joao Azenha Jr. and Prof.Dr. Tinka Reichmann, and always completed them with good to very good results.
I also dedicated my bachelor thesis to the subject of translation.
As you can easily see, language is my great passion.
From 2020 to 2021 I did further study to become a translator and interpreter at courts and authorities. In 2022 I was authorized for the Portuguese language in Hamburg.
Through my knowledge of other languages I have a broad portfolio that I can fall back on, so I never get bored :)
In my very valuable free time I like to bake and do sports like cycling, jogging and yoga. In addition to that, there is my band Thiem.Wunder I have been singing in for years now.
From this I draw out my strength and positive energy and enjoy quiet minutes in meditation to sort out all stimuli from outside.
