For the Federal Prosecutor and the Federal Criminal Court
Speaking a language means finding access to the people of a foreign country, penetrating its culture and history, and feeling a sense of belonging.
Interpreting and translating means aligning the expectations of people with different backgrounds and building bridges that overcome prejudices.
Language skills, certificates, memberships
Interpreting at courts, I specialize on the field of economic crimes.
Since 2014, I had more than 500 interpreting assignments::
- Federal Criminal Court in Bellinzona
- Federal Prosecutor and Federal Criminal Police in Bern and Zurich
- Criminal courts, civil courts and public prosecutors’ offices of the cantons AG, BE, BL, BS, SO and the state of Baden-Württemberg
As a translator, I specialize on demanding business and legal texts. Some flagship projects:
