About MiDo (Michael Dollman)

German/English intercultural experience and competence for your language needs

Half a lifetime in Germany, half in England means I'm at home in both cultures.
My academic background, language skills and work experience in German and UK and US companies, along with 20-years as a freelance translator – together provide the ideal basis for me to identify and meet your language needs.
Recent qualification as a TEFL teacher and active professional development in business English teaching round off my language offerings for companies and individuals alike.
