I am, in all modesty, a flexible, quality-oriented, full-time, hard-working, professional translator.

Translation only. 


Dutch (The Netherlands) is my mother tongue. I pretend to be fluent in English, proficient in German and French, and I have developed reading skills in most Western European languages. I have profound knowledge of the specific vocabulary and syntax used in Flemish (Dutch Belgium / Belgian Dutch).

My flair for languages is rooted in my family, with four other (semi-)professional translators and two literary writers.

Pairs (language combinations)

I work on an almost daily basis for regular clients in the following pairs:

English > Dutch

Dutch > English

Flemish > English

Although I am not a sworn/certified translator, ISO certified agencies I work for appreciate and certify - and embassies legalise - my translations

Generally USD 0.07 - 0.10 per source word, depending on a number of factors, such as subject, source format, quality and level of difficulty of the text, layout, repetitions, etc. 

In 2008, I started a new career as a professional, full-time, freelance translator.
I have worked on more than 10,000 projects in a wide variety of fields for companies across the globe.
Sample Translations
Examples of my personal translations are available upon request. 

I work for all major translation offices in Thailand, where I lived before, as well as for some twenty elsewhere in Asia, Europe and North-America.
