About me

Since the end of 2003, I’ve been working as a sci­en­ti­fic trans­la­tor in the fiel­ds of sci­en­ces, mathe­ma­tics and com­pu­ter sci­ence. Over the years, I’ve exten­ded my range of ser­vices by LaTeX con­sul­ting and tea­ching, editing and tech­ni­cal docu­men­ta­ti­on.

In 1997, I ear­ned a Diploma (equi­va­lent to a Master’s degree) in phy­sics with a focus in theo­reti­cal phy­sics and mathe­ma­tics. During my stu­dies, I worked as a stu­dent assi­stant for LaTeX ques­ti­ons at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig. From this expe­ri­ence, I was able to typeset the trans­la­ted books in LaTeX from the very begin­ning.

An important part of both my per­so­nal and pro­fes­sio­nal phi­lo­so­phy is: If I deci­de to take a pro­ject, then I’m in it with all of my heart and my soul. A few years ago, I came across a quote that sum­ma­ri­zes this approach very well.

The very best talent is of no use if the aut­hor is unab­le to sit down at the table and stay sit­ting there very deter­mi­ned­ly.
