From Brisbane, Australia, to the world
Owned and operated by Principal Consultant and Head Translator Susanne Creak, and collaborating with established and trusted industry partners, Languageconsult offers a wealth of experience in international and multicultural communication. Susanne completed her tertiary studies in business, foreign languages and translation in Germany in 1993 and for the first 12 years of her career worked within large international corporations. After moving to Australia permanently in 2006, she focused on providing language services. Susanne has worked as translator, subtitler and executive manager in the localisation industry and in 2018 decided to focus her activities on the services she enjoys most, in her own boutique language business.
Susanne speaks four languages (English, German, French & Spanish) and has been a NAATI Certified Translator German/English and member of AUSIT (the professional association for translators and interpreters in Australia) since 2007. She endorses the AUSIT Code of Ethics and in 2014 led the introduction of a “Best Practices” manual in the translation of official and legal documents for practitioners in Australia. She added to her qualifications by undertaking specific subtitling training in 2009 and keeps her skills up to date with regular professional development. Most recently, Susanne joined the newly founded Entertainment Globalization Association (EGA) as a member, a global group of companies and localisation professionals committed to helping content creators tell their stories to global audiences. She has been working as a subtitler on a number of programs, documentaries, cartoons and feature films shown at international film festivals and on streaming platforms.
Thanks to years of relevant professional activity, Susanne is extremely well connected within her industry. When dealing with higher volumes in German/English and with other languages, she works together with the most experienced and trusted colleagues. She was a founding Executive in the Queensland Chapter of the German-Australian Chamber of Industry & Commerce and has been a presenter at various events, e. g. on Cultural Considerations and Translating for Foreign Markets for the Export Council of Australia.
