Bodrum Consulting & Translation was founded by Annette Ertan in 2004. Born and raised in Germany, she has lived in Bodrum since 1988. She dedicated the first years of her professional career to tourism, in particular yacht tourism. For seven years she managed both the Public Relations and Foreign Patients Departments of a private hospital. For the last decade she has taught German, French, English and Turkish and has worked as an official translator. As a result of her involvement in a variety of organisations, mainly in the charity sector, she has excellent relations throughout the Bodrum region.

The Bodrum Consulting & Translation team consists mainly of expatriates of different nationalities who have been resident in Turkey for many years and are fluent in Turkish. Originating from different professional backgrounds - tourism, teaching or law - they are all university graduates who have extensive work experience in Turkey.
