    My two core competencies are social media optimization and translation (English/German). As a native German-speaker and thanks to my seven-year stay in South Africa I have insight into how languages are actually used compared towhat you learn in school. I have worked as a freelance translator and am doingtranslations now through odesk.com. Over the past 15 years I have worked in different fields of administration, sales, social media and search engine optimization. I worked 10 years in Austria both in sales and SEO before I moved to South Africa to be in sales for an online shop of a large electronic consumer company. I currently live in Austria working as a self-employed social media consultant and translator.
