Hello, I'm Jeanette Brickner!
I’m a German to English translator, proofreader, and editor with over a decade of experience in the language services field.
Born and raised in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area, I hold degrees in German and English Linguistics at BA level, as well as an MA in German Language, Literature and Translation from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I also have training from the University of Chicago on editing using the Chicago Manual of Style. Throughout my adult life, I have lived and traveled throughout Europe, including in Germany, Poland, Romania, the United Kingdom, and the Czech Republic, which has provided me with a unique insight into the use of English as a global lingua franca and its role as an indispensable marketing tool for any cutting-edge business with international goals. With a lifelong passion for language, an in-depth understanding of the nuances of a multitude of cultures, and a flair for words, I am the ideal partner who will work with you to craft a winning message for your global audience.
