How did you come across Apostroph and what prompted you to stay?
I came to Apostroph back in 2010 and started off working in project management – until I went on maternity leave in 2015.
At the start of this year, I was pleased to hear from Karin Heinzer who surprised me by offering me a job. So I’ve been part of the Vendor Management Team since May, and I love it!
What do you like about languages and translation?
Well, I found languages fascinating from a very early age. And I was lucky enough to grow up with two languages and be blessed with a natural talent when it comes to languages. I’ve always enjoyed learning a new language. Everything about languages is so exciting: how they work, their individual characteristics, their origins and their development to the form they have today. And what all this background of a language means for a good translation.
Has anything at work or in life been challenging or exciting you recently?
The implementation of our new myFREELANCE portal – I’m so pleased that the freelancers absolutely love the portal. I take great pleasure in the diverse range of tasks in Vendor Management, whether that involves looking through interesting applications, creating blog posts or quite simply the everyday exchanges with freelancers and colleagues.
You know what they say about all work and no play. What do you like doing in your private life and in your free time?
I see my family as being my balance. And recently we acquired a hairy addition to the family: our dog Thiago now goes with us on our daily walks.
What book is on your bedside table and what’s your favourite listening on a relaxing Sunday morning?
Most of all I like reading fantasy novels – anything I can get my hands on. I love immersing myself in another world and escaping from my everyday routine for a while. And I’m also a big fan of real-crime podcasts. Music? I have music on in the background virtually all day.
