Sandra Denker holds a degree as Technical Translator of the Fachhochschule Flensburg (University of Applied Science) in Germany.

At the moment, this educational course concentrates on the languages English - German since technical subjects and the corresponding words and phrases take up a large part of the lectures.

In order to become a Technical Translator, one has to study three years in Flensburg and one year abroad.  The year abroad can only be spent in countries with English as the official language.  One term of this year has to be spent studying at a university.  During the second term the students have to do an internship in a translation agency or in the office of a company.  The conclusion of the studies is a thesis written by the student.

Furthermore, she has worked as a translator before—as freelancer as well as in translation offices—and gained insight and experience.
