Heidrun Weiß - Translations

Heidrun Weiss, MA

Translator GermanEnglish and Spanish 

After three semesters of studying Law at the University of Vienna, and completing an internship in the HR and Marketing Departments of the international pharmaceutical company Sandoz in Buenos Aires, I decided to become a translator. I enrolled at the Centre for Translation Studies in Vienna with a major in Transcultural Communication and completed my academic education with a Master’s degree with distinction in Technical Translation. Due to my strong interest in the fields of law and comparative legal linguistics, I wrote my thesis on “The influence of Latin on today’s German and English legal language with special emphasis on latinisms and Latin maxims”.

Working as a project manager at one of Vienna’s leading translation agencies, I added broad practical experience to the theoretical skills I had acquired at University. This way, I accumulated all necessary tools for my freelance career as a technical translator and founded Weiss Translations e. U. in 2016. Since then I have provided translation services for many clients mostly from my specialty fields law, medicine and pharmaceutics but also for a variety of clients from other industries.

It is my highest priority to adhere to the specific requirements of your language project and to help you meet your objectives.
