Everyone has a story to tell

This is Mine.

I’m Lynn Nothegger

In my late teens, moving from my hometown in Scotland to a new country to work as an au-pair sounded like fun. And then the plan became reality and I was on a train speeding through the German countryside, not really sure if I was on the right track.

Literally.

I only knew with certainty that I’d boarded the right train at Frankfurt Airport, when I saw the Fortress Marienburg on the hill above Würzburg.

And so began my German adventure.

On that very first day, I met the man who would become my husband, but that is a story for another day!

Over the last twenty years, among other things, I learned to speak German with a Franconian accent, completed an apprenticeship, welcomed two children and a dog into our lives, and worked in sales and marketing in UK and Germany.

I also moved house a lot. Two of these moves were international ones, to Geneva on secondment with my husband and to my home country Scotland for four years. In 2016, we came full circle, when we moved back to the city where it all began. Würzburg.

We live here with our now teenage children and our fluffy white dog, and I can’t imagine ever moving away again. As Hermann Hesse said, ‘If I could choose my place of birth, I would consider Würzburg’.

Some Examples of my Work.

What my customers say

Wir möchten uns ganz herzlich bedanken. Mit unserem Projekt standen wir zeitlich sehr unter Druck. Lynn ist spontan eingesprungen und hat unseren Text zu unserer vollen Zufriedenheit übersetzt – einerseits natürlich zuverlässig, schnell und korrekt und andererseits hat sie vor allem den Geist des Textes erfasst und bewahrt. Wir sind zu 100 % zufrieden und können Lynn jedem weiter empfehlen.

Software Testimonial

Besonders beindruckt haben uns ihre hervorragenden rhetorischen und stilistischen Fähigkeiten, die sie zu einer exzellenten Authorin machen, die brillante Texte vom Storytelling über einen Blogbeitrag bis hin zum Social Media Post verfasst.

Lynn hat für mich einen Teil meiner Webseite geschrieben. Wir hatten ein super sympathisches kurzes Telefonat auf Deutsch, in dem Sie auf meine Vorstellungen eingegangen ist, aber auch ihr Marketing Wissen genutzt hat um den Inhalt verkaufend darzustellen. Freundlich, verständlich und erfahren! Ich würde sie jederzeit für weitere Texte buchen.

I contacted Lynn because I’ve been meaning to start a blog for ages using the tidbits of information I pick up to help my clients.  Unfortunately, it always gets shoved to the bottom of the to-do list.  So when I read that Lynn could help me, I decided to go for it.

I wasn’t entirely sure how it would work but Lynn assured me that she could take the bits and pieces that I’d already put together, along with the various articles I had noted with more information and make it into something coherent.

Well, she delivered!  What’s more, during our initial discussion, she helped me find other ideas for blog posts to link into the original one.

I will definitely be using Lynn’s services again in the future!
