Lost in Translation?
Andy Lynam is British, but has lived in Zürich for more than 7 years, working as a proposal and marketing writer at the HQ of German logistics giant, Kühne + Nagel.
His career has stretched from wine retailing, through database development, into proposal management and automation tools like Qvidian. He has focused on proposals for 15 years with companies like Dell and Experian in the UK, and K+N in Switzerland. Andy fell into proposals by accident, while working as a database programmer. He instantly knew he had found his true vocation!
Andy admits his attempts to become fluent in German have not been fully successful but he loves the logic of Deutsch, and the challenge of turning technical German into clear, persuasive, written English. He will shortly become a freelance English language specialist, focusing on writing and editing proposals and other sales & marketing material, particularly for a German audience
