About me
I am a freelance translator with experience in the field of religion, nutrition, medical, market research and telecommunication. I completed my BA degree in languages, majoring in English and French.

I believe I have gained experience through practical work and is punctual and accurate. I am fully bilingual, but prefer to translate from English to Afrikaans. I love my mother tongue and always try to use the idioms and nuances typical of Afrikaans, without sacrificing accuracy.

My hobbies are reading, gardening, nutrition research and bible study. I also wrote several articles on nutrition, e.g. "Crack the food colour code"; "Tips to lower your blood pressure"; "Fibre facts" and various others.

Translation Experience :

Medical : Orthopaedics, Medical Questionnaires and Information Sheets, Tablet Information , General subjects like Alzheimer's disease, AIDS, High Blood Pressure, etc.

Marketing : Various products, like baby cots, tourist brochures, agricultural shows, liposuction machines, customer satisfaction surveys, etc.

Telecommunication : Website for help tickets, cell phone information, information of change from analog to digital tv.

Religion : Various Bible commentaries, like the books of Genesis and Jeremiah.

CV's, Documents and Certificates : Birth, Divorce, Marriage, Qualifications.
