Well, my name is Andreas. I am 26 and I have recently finished my studies in conference interpreting. Technically I still am a student, but once my thesis is handed in, that chapter is closed and the last pages of both are in the making.

Since finishing with my studies, I have been entering bit by bit into the freelance world, getting to know all ups and downs it entails. My ultimate goal is to eventually live from freelance interpreting one day. Up until now, I’d call myself very lucky to have made some first steps and I am very grateful to have collected experience of various kinds. However, it’s a dangerous business to step out your front door, as you don’t know where you might be swept off to when you don’t watch your feet 🙂

Since last October, I have also been teaching liasion interpreting to students at my home university, so yes, I am one of the bad guys, grading people and being peaky about their interpreting and language skills.

This blog is all about freelancing, my experiences and interpreting in general. Feel free to come back to me, I’d be happy about any kinds of feedback.
