About me
I am a full-time freelance translator and editor with extensive experience in translating legal, technical, and medical documents. I pride myself on the extremely high quality of the work I deliver.

Major companies for whom I have translated include Microsoft, Alcatel-Lucent, Hewlett-Packard, Dutch Railways, Shell, Randstad, GITP, Lotus Bakeries, Ernst&Young as well as many other satisfied clients.

Correction/editing of general English, scientific and social science texts.

B.Sc.Soc.Sci. (Edinburgh) 1971, Dip.Ed. (Dundee) 1975.
I am a native English speaker working in the Netherlands where I have lived for the last 35 years.
I held a part-time appointment in the University of Leiden as an editor of scientific papers for publication in journals up until May 2006.
I have 20 years' experience in translation, and 25 years' experience in correction/editing English.
In 2007 I managed a 250,000-word translation project into 8 different languages for a major oil company, involving translation, back translation, revision and verification of the final PDF products.
In 2008 the same company commissioned the translation into 7 different languages of 46,000 words on the same basis.

I can translate a minimum of 2500 words per day. Rates depend on the subject matter.
