Last week we were super happy to welcome Nadine Rieser to the ranks of the AJT German in-house team, where she’s quickly found her feet.
Having recently graduated from the University of Geneva with an MA in Translation and Technologies, Nadine leaves the mountains of Switzerland behind her and is delighted to find herself translating freely by the sea in Cornwall.
With a BA in Multilingual Communication, a stint working as a project manager for a translation company in Lausanne, experience teaching English and German to children and young people, and an earlier background working in the book industry, Nadine has a good understanding not only of the translation industry and of business in general, but also of language and the doors it can open for young people: she brings a great many strengths to our team!
This isn’t Nadine’s first experience of life in the UK having spent the first two years of her BA at the University of East Anglia before returning to Geneva to complete her studies. A bit of a globetrotter, she also lived and studied for a year in the US after high school, and has taught English to students in France and Spain.
And there’s more… Nadine is a dedicated fitness enthusiast and already a committed member of the local gym, where she can be seen flexing her weightlifting muscles. Not being one to sit still, she’s just signed up for a martial arts course and is planning to get her first surfing lesson under her belt very soon.
