    Creator Language & Design

    Spain - Last active: 3 months 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.
