Anja Filip studied mathematics and physics at the Freie Universität Berlin and Oxford University, taking her degree examination in mathematics in May 2001.

In 1997 she started working regularly as a freelance translator for a large technical translations agency in Berlin. Shortly after completing her degree, she became a project manager at this agency, assuming responsibility for large translation projects. She oversaw important customer relationships and, with her extensive know-how, supervised in-house translators.

There she got to know Günter Simon, then senior supervisor and manager of the German language department. Together they established angusi expert translations in July 2005.

Besides supervising translation projects, Anja Filip is also responsible for technology at angusi. She looks after the hardware and software, and is also in charge of the databanks
