Les Idées

Ahoj, I‘m Nadine Stelzer.

Words are the cells of my organism. For as long as I can remember, I have been exploring their components, playing and experimenting with them, sensing and enjoying their sound. I find equivalents in different languages, let them melt on my tongue, and sparkle on paper.

As a word weaver and translator, I support mission-driven companies or individuals, artists, body therapists, holistic psychologists, and writers. To spread your message, knowledge, and beauty.

What to expect when working with me:

  • genuine communication
  • a holistic, pragmatic, and empathic perspective on written material and content
  • a sustainable collaboration
  • research-based and intuitive approaches
  • language and communication expertise
  • an experimental and physical approach to arts

The roots: over 20 years of experience in various industries and roles
