Conference interpreter (M.A.)
&
Translator (M.A.)

What do dance and communication have in common?

Imagine the following scene: It’s the opera ball and the ladies’ choice has just begun. How unusual would it be to say now: “Hello, I’m Marie, 35 years old and a bookworm.” Rather, the lady adapts to the situation and asks, “May I have this dance?” Then nothing should actually stand in the way of the dance. But as the saying goes, “It takes two to tango”. Both partners have to move harmoniously and synchronously. The more perfectly they master their métier and read the other person, the more elegant the interplay. All these elements can also be found in good communication. If you don’t observe cultural etiquette, you will quickly come across as a snub on the international stage.

As international communication is becoming increasingly important both privately and professionally, I would like to assist you and enable barrier-free interaction with your counterpart. I am Nadja Gläser – conference interpreter (M.A.) and translator (M.A.) with the working languages Spanish and English. In addition to my linguistic and professional qualifications, I place particular emphasis on empathy, the ability to interpret body language and diplomacy. Through a one-and-a-half-year stay in Spain and many contacts with people from Latin America, I know the culture and customs of the countries first-hand and know what is important in communication.

Apart from languages, dancing is my great passion. Both professions require constant development, self-reflection, flexibility and patience.

However, while in dancing one receives direct feedback through a mirror, in interpreting and translating the communication partner takes over this role indirectly. A lot of experience and sensitivity is therefore needed to respond quickly and appropriately in a conversation. Because language is so essentially anchored in a culture, using it correctly often makes the difference between a successful business meeting and an embarrassment. What excites me about interpreting and translating is getting to grips with subjects that are unfamiliar to me. The great challenge is then to reproduce what was said or written in the context, but without translating word for word. The art of abstraction in turn leads back to dancing, where individual steps finally merge into a smooth flow of movement.

Through my membership in the German Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators (BDÜ), I have an excellent network of qualified and professional colleagues. So if you need a service in a language that I do not offer, I can also help you. Furthermore, as a sworn interpreter for the Spanish language and an authorised translator for the Spanish and English languages, I can also provide support when the going gets tough.

With me at your side, nothing stands in the way of your international communication and you can venture safely onto the slippery parquet.
