The Translation People welcome Denise Sauer to the team
The Translation People are pleased to welcome Denise Sauer to the team. Denise recently started work in the Birmingham office as Account Manager. She completed her undergraduate studies in Würzburg, Germany, at the Würzburger Dolmetscherschule (school for translators and interpreters). She specialised in economics, with English being her first and Spanish her second foreign language. In 2008, after graduating as a certified translator and interpreter (German and English), she went to Birmingham to start an MA course at Aston University. During her course, MA in Translation in a European Context, Denise studied amongst others theoretical concepts of translation. The study of theoretical aspects aroused her interest in how translations can affect societies, which is also reflected in her MA dissertation, in which she analyses and describes the first English translation of Grimms’ fairy tales and its effects on English children’s literature in nineteenth century England.
After her studies, Denise worked as an in-house translator in Lichfield/Staffordshire. During this time, she also introduced memoQ to make translation processes in the company she worked for more efficient. In her new role as Account Manager, she particularly looks forward to working with different people from all sorts of cultures and to meeting customers’ translation needs. In her spare time, Denise likes to meet friends, travel (particularly city trips), and riding horses, a hobby which she hopes she can take up again in Birmingham in the near future.
