Apart from a fine selection of books on investment and accounting and the relevant dictionaries (books and, whereever possible, electronic dictionaries), I keep up to date with events in the financial markets, accounting legislation and business developments by regularly reading the relevant business papers (my favourites: Handelsblatt and Börse online).

I also love to work with state of the art technical equipment

  • PC under Windows XP
  • 2 flat screen monitors
  • Laptop
  • Backup PC

and have excellent expertise in using programs

  • MS Office 2000/XP
  • Adobe FrameMaker 6.0
  • diverse web editors
  • handling of XML files
  • Translation Memorys
    • TRADOS (7.5)
    • Déjà Vu (DV 3 + DVX)
    • SDLX (2003).

and, of course there is all the peripheral technical equipment necessary:

  • high speed internet connection
  • external backup
  • Printer
  • CD and DVD Burner, etc...
