I have been active as translator since May 2003, working on a wide variety of translation and copywriting projects with 35 deadlines per week / up to 4,000 words per day on average. Projects include books on health and wellness, a great many commercial and educational websites, countless magazine articles, government documents, reports, presentations, and user manuals.
Subjects include ecology and environment, alternative energy, nuclear energy, marketing, art & design, lifestyle, fashion, music, food, pharmaceutics, history, cultural events, and tourist information.
Clients include Aigremont, Apple, AXA, BouMatic, Carrefour, Coca-Cola, Daikin, Deutsche Bank, Eder (Villas Magazine), Engel & Völkers (The Global Guide), Ethias, Fedict (the Belgian Federal Public Service for Information and Communication Technology), G Data, Interreg (SUN Project), KBC, McDonald's, Opel, Philips, Quick, Sanoma (DotGlam Magazine, Gentleman Magazine, Loving You Magazine), Solvay, Sony, Suez GDF, Thalys, Total, Touring (Touring Explorer Magazine), Université Libre de Bruxelles, and Volvo.
From 2003 until 2010 I also worked as a journalist, replacing the office crew of Belgium's main press agency during the night. This job included following the international French-, English- and German-language news agencies, translating relevant news into Dutch, and editing and reviewing French-language news reports. Furthermore I wrote news reports (in Dutch) based on acquired information, and I served as a multilingual spokesperson by telephone.
I translate from English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and German into Dutch, and from Dutch, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and German into English. I also offer localisation of commercial Dutch texts between the Netherlands and Belgium (Dutch to Flemish and vice versa), and copywriting in Dutch and English.
I was born in the Netherlands, lived in Belgium for most of my professional life, and am now based in South America. I travel extensively, and am usually available during European business hours.
