About me
Born in London and later brought up in Holland, I am near native in 2 languages. I worked as a language teacher and translator in Venezuela for the last 15 years. In 1999 I started to develop Spanish, English and Dutch language courses. In 2001 I was involved in my first court case as an interpreter and by now I have been an interpreter in over 100 cases. For the last 8 years I have been a full time freelance translator.

Coming from the educational world I understand like no other what languages are about. I fully understand that translating isn't simply putting words from one language into another, but it should be a written interpretation of what the customer actually wants to say.

As a translator I decided to specialize in the fields I am most interested in, which is why I only offer legal, technical, management and safety related translations.

On time delivery and high quality translations are guaranteed. I refuse to make promises I cannot keep. In the unlikely event that you do not receive your translation on time, you will not receive an invoice and the translation will be free. However, I have always received payment.

I'm looking forward to working with you.

With kind regards,

Peter van der Hoek
