Being of Belgian-Dutch descent, I have been raised in a fully bi-lingual fashion (Dutch/Flemish and French). After high school in Belgium, I got my degree at Erasmus University in Rotterdam. Since 1985, I reside in the UK, and my English is to native standard.
I work as a freelance translator and interpreter for companies such as Language Line (telephone interpreting), Bostico International, Astute Translations, K International and others, in the language pairs mentioned. For Language Line, I am also an assessor of new interpreters, and I am an examiner for EdExel oral high school examinations. Due to my husband’s work for the Dorset Police, I am security vetted and hold a CRB certificate. I am also an English<>Dutch/Flemish interpreter for the local Courts.
My strong points at a glance:
- over 20 years of writing and translating financial/corporate press releases, SEC documents and annual reports for PLCs
- a stickler for accent, cultural surrounding, spelling, grammar and punctuation, therefore also a good proofreader
- specialist fields include: finance, insurance and banking, healthcare including pharma, legal (contract law, PACE)
