About me

Christiane loves books! So much so that even as a young girl she dreamt of making them. This ambition led her to pursue academic studies in Art History. During her tenure at a publishing house, Christiane gained in-depth professional experience as a consultant for specialist publications. And after finishing her PhD studies, she completed professional training to become a Multimedia Developer. During this time, digital media was growing in significance, and digital and interactive products were appearing on the market with increasing frequency. The World Wide Web was also picking up steam.

Following this trend, Christiane founded Media in Context in 1993. The company is specialized in the transfer of media content from English into German. In the world of digital media, the technical term for this is Localization.

During the company’s first 20 years, its focus was primarily on software products published on CD-ROM, DVD and increasingly online. Perhaps the best known among these is the first version of the Parallels Desktop for Mac software for running Windows on an Apple Macintosh. Shortly after its localization, the German version of the product went on to sell 1 million copies!

For several years now, Christiane has focused on the translation and editing of TV Documentaries. The range of topics here includes historical, scientific and social subjects as well as art and current politics.

When translating, she strives to create a pleasant-sounding German localization while also thoroughly reviewing the original source content for accuracy. During this process, each statement of key information is analyzed, and corrected or adjusted if necessary.

Christiane says that her collaboration with subject-matter experts in a variety of content areas makes her work particularly exciting, and it allows her to broaden her horizons each and every day.
