“Turn your liabilities into assets.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger
In my position as German language coach, I am helping actors to prepare and stand by them on set for roles that require them to speak German or with a German accent.
As a German native speaker, it were my language skills that helped me to come to Canada in the first place, as I was hired to work as a German/English translator and localization specialist in the video game industry. My job required me not only to translate scripts but revise voice actors for the intended games.
In my other position as script supervisor, I have obtained the skills it requires to listen closely to the actors and follow the scripted dialogue. As such and as a trained actress myself, I know the requirements of production and what it is like to work on both sides of the camera.
