Background and qualifications

I am a freelance English-to-Dutch and Indonesian-to-Dutch translator and editor (level of education: PhD) with a passion for languages and Indonesia/Asia. An Indonesian Studies graduate, I obtained a PhD in the Humanities (Indonesian Studies) in 2003. In 2007, I left my career as a university lecturer at Amsterdam University, Department of Media Studies (three years), to become a full-time language professional. This meant returning to my other career path, as I had been a part-time translator and language trainer (Indonesian) for ten years. Since becoming a full-time language professional I have specialized in translating and editing (academic) texts written in Dutch, Indonesian or English. Most of the texts that I translate or edit relate to Asia/Indonesia, but I am open to any language or consultancy assignment in my working languages. My areas of specialization are media, entertainment and culture; linguistics, art and literature; Indonesia, Southeast and East Asia, tourism and travel; anthropology, history and cultural studies. I have excellent language and communication skills, and a keen eye for detail and style. I am accurate and fast, and dedicated to building and maintaining excellent working relationships with my clients. I will always strive to provide clients with high-quality translations and excellent editorial services.


I am fluent in Dutch, English and Indonesian, and can read and understand French and German on an intermediate level.

My agency - Indonesia Specialist

As head and founder of translation agency Indonesia Specialist, I manage a team of highly qualified freelance translators and native speakers, enabling me to offer clients additional services, such as translations into specific Indonesian languages as well as Malaysian, and translations from Indonesian into English and vice versa. For this purpose I work in close cooperation with a pool of translators, all of whom are university trained and/or native speakers of the target language. Please visit my website Indonesia Specialist or send me an email for more information.

Past projects

Please consult my CV for details on recent projects. Past projects include the revision of an Indonesian language course for a distance learning institute; translation of a trilingual (Indonesian/English/Dutch) publication for an academic publisher; editing of various academic, book-length texts on Southeast and East Asia; proofreading of an online journal on Korea; selection and translation of audiovisual excerpts for a large exhibition in a Dutch museum, which ran for over a year; subtitling of Indonesian films and documentaries for a Dutch production company; translation into Dutch of an English database for an English company specialized in language training.

Services and rates

Services that I provide include translating, editing, proofreading, subtitling (no specialized software available), language training (Indonesian/Dutch) and consultancy. My rates are dependent on the language pair required, the complexity of the text, the purpose of the translation and the urgency of the assignment. Charges may be added for rush work and for working on weekends, while discounts may be provided for high volumes of work. Please submit the source text to obtain a full and binding quote.
