About Me

I  am

Melanie Schmidt and I was born on 24th September 1990 in Brühl near Cologne.

I did a vocational training as a Foreign Language Assistant in Trade and as a Translator at the Übersetzer- und Dolmetscherschule Köln des RBZ Köln ["Translator & Interpreter School of Cologne at the RBZ Cologne" (dolmetscherschule-koeln.de)] and I am working as a Writer since 1999.

Now I am working as a (freelance) translator, mainly for literature, but also for smaller inquiries.

I became a translator for I love writing since I was 9 years old and ever since I was fascinated by the English language. So this passion developed more and more.
