About me
Margreet Mohle


Native Dutch (NL) speaker working from French, English and Portuguese. MAs in translation and linguistics (terminology), translator since 1996 (often part-time). Extensive cross-cultural experience (Europe, Africa, Canada), used to working in multilingual teams. Excellent research, editing and analytical skills.

Education: Licentiaat Vertaler (M.A. in translation), Hoger Instituut voor Vertalers en Tolken (Higher Institute for Translators and Interpreters) in Antwerp, Belgium, for French and Portuguese
During my translation studies, I also took courses in consecutive and simultaneous interpreting.

M.A. in Linguistics, with a specialization in Terminology, Université de Montréal in Canada.
The course work included several translation courses (English to French) and extensive study of lexicology and terminology research and practice.

I worked as a trainee for the European Parliament in Luxembourg, 3 months in the Dutch department and 3 months in the Terminology department.

Terminology research at the Department of Translation and Linguistics of the Université de Montréal, mainly in the fields of Retail and Marketing. I was very involved in the editing stages of the Dictionnaire analytique de la distribution/Analalytical Dictionary of Retailing by Jeanne Dancette (available online here). My research project added a Dutch component and commentary to a selection of the terms of this dictionary.

I spent 4 1/2 years in Guinea, West-Africa, where amongst other activities, I translated and interpreted from English to French. I also had the opportunity to learn the Pular language and the Fula culture.

From 2008 to 2009, I worked in the field of Mechanical Engineering, in particular heating technology, editing French manuals and translating from English to French. Since then, I worked on various projects in a freelance capacity

My main working languages are French, Portuguese and English to Dutch.
I also have a good understanding of German and Spanish.
