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.
I’m a member of the »Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft (DPG)« and the »Deutschsprachige Anwendervereinigung TeX e.V. (dante)«.
