Nadja Schmidt – More about me

What makes me special as an interpreter?

I am passionate about your project!

I became an interpreter and translator because it’s my passion to build bridges between people and cultures and to immerse myself in a wide variety of subjects. It fascinates me to create understanding between people who do not speak the same language. It would be my pleasure to do the same for your project!

Of course I can tell you a lot of facts about me

But what matters in the end is that you are satisfied with my service – whether that’s for translation or interpreting. That doesn’t always depend on degrees or experience – it also comes down to whether or not I am passionate about your project, and that is always my aspiration!

If you would like to see for yourself, I look forward to hearing from you!
