My name is Vanessa Walsh and I am a Canadian-turned-Bavarian freelance translator and teacher, working in a small city just north of Munich. I'm an avid traveler and language enthusiast, passionate about expression, linguistic fluidity, grammar, sentence structure, punctuation, etc. (I know; I'm such a nerd. ? )
I grew up in a small town north of Toronto, studied French, German, and Spanish in Kingston (Ontario), lived in Lyon, France for a year to improve my French, moved back to Canada, graduated, and then decided to move to Germany to improve my German. I ended up falling in love with Bavaria and intend on staying for a while. ?
I also consider myself, like @rjgilsdorf , an entrepreneur. I've recently started a business in multilingual translation, editing, and marketing for self-publishers, indie authors, and the like. It's called Babelsbook. Check it out, or recommend it, if you have a minute; that would be super appreciated. ? Our Facebook page is here.
I'm looking forward to chatting/interacting with you all here on OpenMic - shoutout to @Dmitry for starting it up! Unfortunately, I'm not the biggest Bruce Willis fan... I'm super into Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Terry Pratchett, and anything sci-fi-y. ?
