Rendezvous with Luise Mugrauer

Luise goes angling for talent and keeps Apostroph entertained

Our huge pool of 2,000 or so freelancers is in the vice-like (yet friendly!) grip of Luise Mugrauer. She checks the suitability of new candidates, records their individual skills, such as technical writing or subtitling, and finds the perfect language professional for the obscurest of products. As the point of person for cooperation and pricing issues, she regularly finds herself exercising her well-honed diplomatic skills.

Apostroph Vendor Management Luise Mugrauer

In addition to recruiting freelance linguists and developing the freelancer portal, our new Head of Vendor Management has assumed technical and managerial responsibilities. These include strategic quality and risk management, coaching new staff and organising events and workshops. There’s no doubting Luise’s many talents, but one of them is her innate ability to spread positivity all around her.

Luise’s trajectory: Munich–Salford–Bonn–London–Zurich

Born in Berlin, Luise is a certified translator with a Master of Arts in Translating. Her career to date has seen her progress through a range of roles in the language services sector, ranging from proofreader to global vendor manager. And having worked for a variety of companies including IMIG Institut für Marktforschung im Gesundheitswesen (an institute engaging in market research in the healthcare sector), Deutsche Telekom, CLS Communication (now renamed Lionbridge Switzerland AG) and Allianz Suisse, she brings with her a wealth of industry experience.

Luise has remained a globetrotter at heart with a fondness for other cultures. Prior to dropping her professional anchor in Lake Lucerne four years ago, her home ports have included London and Manchester. “I like the British way of life, their humour and their engaging courtesy.”

Novels and menus on the reading list

Aside from England, Luise has a soft spot for Japan with its Zen Buddhist gardens, megacities and delectable cuisine. Generally speaking, her favourite voyages of discovery are those involving gastronomy – ideally back in her home country. She herself is particularly fond of baking, one of her specialities being a cake featuring Toffifee caramel confectionery: you don’t know whether to laugh or eat it!
