SAE-Carlie headshot snippet.jpg

My name is Carlie. I am an ATA-certified German to English translator with over ten years of experience as a translator and technical writer.

Having grown up in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, I learned English as my native language and acquired proficiency in German at the age of twelve. My passion for languages and fascination with technology later inspired me to earn an MA in intercultural German studies from Universität Bayreuth and an AAS in technical drafting/design for manufacturing from Weber State University.
