Professional Experience

After completion of her 3-year professional training in the mid 1980's as a translator/interpreter, Ilke worked as a personal assistant in various positions for the US Military in Würzburg and Mainz, Germany and then as a personal assistant to the founding director of the Max-Planck-Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany. In 1997, she migrated to Australia and started her own business as a full-time self-employed translator (NAATI accreditation as Professional Translator German <-> English). She has always dedicated herself to providing a personal service of the highest standard and quality.

Ilke’s clients include both government and private translation agencies in addition to language service providers, companies and individuals. She is listed as an endorsed translator by the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany in Sydney and by the diplomatic representations in Canberra and Brisbane.

Other experience and personal interests:

Since 1998 Ilke has been an active member of AUSIT (Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators) in State branch committees (Vic and Qld) as well as on a national level as National Secretary.

Ilke also has experience in radio broadcasting (SBS Radio Melbourne) and voice-over.

For a number of years she worked on a casual-basis as a group fitness instructor in various Melbourne fitness studios.  She is a passionate cyclist, so one might see her on her road bike first thing in the morning or during holidays, keeping body and mind fit.

Ilke lives and works in Melbourne during summer months and in Brisbane during winter.

Her love of travel has taken her and her camera around most of Australia, back to Germany to visit her family in Würzburg, as well as to Antarctica, Botswana, and the United States.
