About me

Globalja is the trading name for Sandra Blanco Paetsch.

  • I’m passionate about languages, travel, and getting to know other cultures. I enjoy meeting and working with people from different cultures and backgrounds.
  • I was born in Madrid (Spain) by a German mother and Spanish father. Yet, despite growing  up in a bilingual environment, Spanish was the predominant language in my home. I also lived in England, in the USA, and the Netherlands before I moved to Germany in 2002.
  • I have a BA in English Philology from the Autónoma University of Madrid, a Master in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language, and a PhD in Linguistics. I have taught English at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, and Spanish at Skidmore College, at the Instituto Cervantes of Munich, and at local language schools.
  • My other great passion, translation, came sometime later. Writing well in a language is not the same as speaking the language and teaching it. Therefore, I have taken several courses on specialized translation, translation tools and editing.
  • I was fortunate to get the chance to work for a large multinational company. I have been Training Specialist at the consulting department within the area of Learning and Development. I also worked at the sales departments of TV format distributors, where I translated many texts for the Spanish-speaking audience.
  • Over the past three years, I’ve been an entrepreneur running my own language services business at Globalja. I currently work with both private and professional clients, as well as for translation agencies.

Further information about my quallifications can be found on Linkedin and Xing.
