FIELDS OF EXPERTISE:
Economy + trade
Medicine + pharmaceutics
Travelling + tourism
Humanities + social sciences
I acquired my practical language qualifications for translating English and French in my training as a state approved commercial language assistant. Due to my Dutch-German family background I have profound knowledge of Dutch.
My professional life in companies operating on international level and using English as their corporate language allowed me to enhance my knowledge of my core language English: I worked as a consultant in order processing and as a team leader for international market research studies. In the event industry, I first worked as a team leader and finally as an operations assistant with a focus on process optimization.
My studies of English and German helped me to extend and enhance my language skills as well as my cultural competence. Besides, I regularly practiced my language skills as a freelance language teacher and lecturer for German, English, French, Dutch and Latin.
I improved and developed my language skills as well as my cultural competence by regularly travelling to the U. S., to Great Britain, France and the Benelux countries.
In more than 4 years of professional experience in market research and 6 years in the event industry I gathered experiences as to editorial skills, direct business and commerce. I have substantial knowledge of office and process management as well as of project-based work.
I have always had a passion for foreign languages, and therefore you can be sure to have found an expert translator and editor who pays attention to detail and does her job with enthusiasm and commitment.

The protection of personal data is of important concern to me and I strictly adhere to the data protection laws. Personal data is processed on this website only to the technically necessary extent. Your personal data will under no circumstances be transferred to third parties for any reasons.
All client data and texts are saved on data carriers or back-up media protected by a password. Personal data are in no case stored in a cloud but are encoded in my own IT infrastructure. The encryption standards (256 BIT AES) are in line with the recommendations of ENISA, the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security, on cryptographic solutions for the encryption of long-term data storage. Your personal data are safe even in the case of theft of my data media. To ensure secure data transfer, you can also send your files in a password-protected zip archive.
As I have regularly participated in trainings on PCI Security Standards (a strict and worldwide standard on technical, legal and organisational data security), I am able to recognize and to react to possible threats.

“The cooperation with Ramona has always been enriching. She did not only edit my texts competently and always on time; she also ensured that my writing style has continuously upgraded and improved. The quality of my scientific texts has enormously profited from her important suggestions and corrections. I would not hesitate to engage her again as an editor.”
Nebojša Tabački, Dr.-Ing.
(Author of „Kinetische Bühnen”, transcript 2014)
“The translations Ramona does for us are always perfect and accurate, so we unhesitatingly integrate them into our workflows without further examination or proofreading.“
Helmut Hacker, Back Office Manager, Cido Research GmbH
”Ramona translates individual interviews and group discussions for us. She finds appropriate translations for demanding conversations and complex subjects, so that participants can easily recognize their arguments – and even those who did not attend the conversation get a vivid impression of the situation.”
Diana Padial, Unit Manager Recruiting, Krämer Marktforschung GmbH
Ramona has proofread and revised various scientific texts for me. Beyond her competence and precision in text editing, the cooperation with Ramona is characterized by very transparent feedback as to her revisions. The same is true for her probing, for example, on special citation style cases and the requested standardization of specific formalities. Her feedback is balanced as to conciseness and informative content, so that I can easily keep track of the decisive steps without having to deal with the revisions in detail. Her editing accuracy never ceases to amaze me. Ramona’s job performance means a considerable relief for my work, and I can always feel certain that editors as well as publishers have no reason to object to the texts she reviewed for me.

General information on data processingg
Legal basis of the processing
To the extent that permission of the affected individual is obtained for the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
In the processing of personal data to fulfil a contract whose contractual party is the individual affected, Article 6 (1) lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing required to implement pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation, Article 6 (1) lit. c GDPR serves as legal basis.
If processing is required to safeguard the justified interest of the MPG or a third party and the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the affected individual do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as the basis for such processing.
Data deletion and storage duration
The affected individual’s personal data are deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply (Article 17, 18 GDPR). Storage can also occur if provided for by European or national legislators in EU regulations, acts or other legislation to which I am subject. A blocking or deletion of data then occurs only if a storage period prescribed by one of the aforementioned norms expires, unless a necessity exists in relation to the further storage of the data for the arrangement of a contract or the fulfilment of a contract.
§ 257 (1) of the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch, HGB) stipulates a retention period of 6 years for account books, inventories, opening balance sheets, annual financial statements, business letters, accounting vouchers etc.. § 147 (1) of the German Tax Code (Abgabenordnung, AO) stipulates a retention period of 10 years for account books, records, progress reports, accounting vouchers, business and commercial letters as well as any tax-relevant documents etc.
Administration, financial accounting, office and contact management
I process data in connection with administrative tasks as well as business administration, financial accounting and compliance with legal requirements, e.g. on archiving and data retention. The data processed in that context are the same data processed for the fulfilment of my contractual obligations. The legal basis for such processing is Article 6 (1) lit. c and f GDPR. Data subjects concerned include customers and clients, interested parties, business partners and visitors to my website. The purpose of and my legitimate interest in such processing includes administration, financial accounting, office management and data archiving, i.e. tasks supporting my business operations, the performance of my obligations and the provision of my services. Data deletion regarding contractual obligations, services and communication conforms to the information given herein with respect to these processing activities. In this context, I transmit data to the financial authorities, consultants (e.g. tax advisors, auditors), and further toll agencies and payment services providers.

Cooperation with contract processors
If I disclose data to other persons and companies (contract processors or third parties) within the scope of my processing, transmit data to them or otherwise grant them access to data, this shall only take place based on a legal permission. This applies, for instance, if a transmission of the data to third parties, such as payment service providers, according to Article 6 (1) lit. b GDPR, is required for contract fulfilment, if you have consented, if a legal obligation provides for this or on the basis of my legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.). If I mandate third parties with the processing of data based on a so-called “order processing contract”, this is effected according to Article 28 GDPR.
Data transfer to third countries
If I process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this occurs in the context of the use of third party services or disclosure respectively transfer of data to third parties, this will only take place for the fulfilment of my (pre)contractual obligations, based on your consent, on a legal obligation or on my legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, I have data processed in a third country only if the special requirements of Article 44 ff GDPR are met. This means, for instance, processing is carried out based on special guarantees, such as the officially approved determination of a data protection level corresponding to the EU (e.g. for the USA by the “Privacy Shield”) or compliance with officially approved special contractual obligations (so-called “standard contractual clauses”).
