Native speaker of French and Dutch (Flemish) with near-native proficiency in English.
Educated to an MA degree in Oriental Philology (Gent University) and Post Graduate degree in French writing (University of Geneva). Specialized in technical and legal translations but would be happy to change field.
I started my carreer in Japan as a language teacher and freelance translator.
Later, I established my own translation office in Switzerland in which I worked mainly as a translator and project manager. After a couple of years, I joined a law firm as a translator/editor. I have also worked at the International Electrotechnical Commission as a bilingual English and French Editor . I specialized in editing and translation of big volumes.
I am available for freelance work, but would prefer to work on ongoing projects in order to manage terminology databases and therefore deliver more consistent translations.
