Professional practices Dr O Luttikhuis endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I am a translator Dutch into English specialising in medical genetics, general medicine and life sciences, and pharmaceuticals.

Scientific expertise

During my studies and postdoctoral research, I studied the underlying genetic causes of human diseases and childhood cancer using a wide range of molecular techniques. I carried out internationally collaborative research, wrote and made contributions to scientific articles and gave presentations to medical and scientific staff. These experiences prepared me well for translation in the field of medicine, in particular human genetics, as well as life sciences and pharmaceuticals.

Language skills

I used Dutch and English daily during my studies, work and in my daily life. I finished a university degree in the Netherlands, as well as two postdoctoral degrees in the United Kingdom. During the more than 20 years that I have lived in the United Kingdom, I developed an excellent knowledge of the English language, to the level that I can consider this to be equivalent to my mother tongue.

Translation experience

The document types that I have translated include book chapters, guidelines, reports, reference materials, SmPCs and PILs, procedures for testing in medical laboratories and healthcare texts. So far, I translated close to 700,000 words. I am a confident user of the CAT tool Fluency Now.
