About me
My name is Jan Snauwaert. I live in Antwerp, Belgium. My educational background is technical: I obtained a diploma as Electrical Engineer in 1989. After having worked for almost fifteen years in the IT-industry, I decided to reorient my career to something that I love even more than technique and technology: languages. That's why five years ago, I decided to start as a translator in several languages (Dutch, English, French, German, Spanish, ...). I consider myself rather as an allround translator, capable of assimilating new domains of expertise in a very short time. I contributed to several projects and am rapidly extending my knowledge and abilities. The more difficult the translation assignment, the better.
Actually, I started to develop a new website (under construction): Translator-biz-success
