About me
I am a Dutch native speaker and translator with a university degree in linguistics (Spanish) and 17 years translation experience, mainly in the field of travel and tourism, art and architecture, technical manuals and operating instructions. I also take on subjects like botany, wool and spinning, photography, environment and ecology, yoga and spirituality, because they have my special interest.

Each translation is a gem and a challenge. The necessary research is a way of expanding, which is extremely satisfying. Just love it.
