    Creator Language & Design

    Spain - Last active: 25 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 8

    Communicate your ideas, wrap them nicely, and connect with your audience. I help people communicate in English, Spanish and German, as well as through visuals. My working languages are English, Spanish and German. I translate and create content and design that will resonate with the target audience. After all your goal is to convert your visitors into clients. I enjoy being creative and coming up with new original ideas. I love design and in addition to creating web content I am always broadening my insights on marketing effective web design. I am happy to share my knowledge and help you improve your communication. Great content is useless if nobody reads it. I am a German native speaker and nearly native in English and Spanish, as well as fluent in French. As a language learning fan I speak a few other languages on a basic or intermediate level, but English, German and Spanish have been my working languages for many years. I have a degree in law and have worked as a corporate and M&A lawyer for 6 years. But following my passions I have spent a lot of my spare time studying psychology and graphic design. Today I combine the experience I have gathered in translation, multilingual communication, and negotiation as a lawyer with the marketing, writing and design skills, to create your content.

    I am currently an independent contract attorney. I work mostly in family law, but can also do other contract work. I am an excellent proofreader, and a great legal writer and researcher. This is my preferred work, but I am open to discuss anything you can throw at me. I want to expand my legal knowledge, and take on some challenging tasks in order to help my career. I have spent 6 months before law school working for a public defender. During my second summer of law school, I worked with a private family and criminal law attorney. Since I have passed the BAR in October, I have continued to work with that attorney, and I also work with a second family attorney. Feel free to contact me with your ideas or needs.
