First and foremost, I am a passionate translator, language aficionada and bibliophile. I’ve been working as a translator since 2011. Specialising in topics of personal interest has two advantages: it offers me the luxury to do what I love but it also gives you the guarantee that your texts are handled by an expert in the respective specialist area.
Born and raised in Vienna, Austria with a bicultural and bilingual background (Austrian-Persian), concepts such as cultural awareness and language sensitivity have always been part of my life. I graduated in Scandinavian Studies (MA) and Dutch Studies (PhD) at the University of Vienna, Austria. As a university assistant and lecturer for Dutch at the University of Vienna and Graz, I immersed into the Dutch and Flemish language and culture even more. Moving to Flanders, Belgium marked the (preliminary) final destination of my journey.
