Silke Lührmann holds an MA in Literary Translation from Swansea University. Her portfolio includes commissions for New Books in German, the Goethe Institute and the Centre for Contemporary German Culture at Swansea University, but she earns her living mainly from commercial translation. Taking part in the Translators in Schools programme reminds her that there is so much more to translation than maintenance manuals for bag-making machines. Silke is also a Business Language Champion for CILT Cymru, works as a Business Skills tutor for freelance translators at Swansea University and mentors trainees/interns as part of her role as an in-house translator for a medium-sized language service provider.
