I have worked as a scientist on the subject of fossil plant life for the past fifteen years. I am therefore very knowledgeable in the field of biology, geology, ecology, botany, climate science and environmental science. I am a native Dutch speaker, but I have lived in the United States and Australia for over seven years. I have always had an interest in editing and working with language (and have proofread and edited many scientific papers), and I love to make a written text as close to perfect as possible. I have written several scientific papers in English myself and I am a very meticulous proofreader and editor. When I returned to the Netherlands a year ago I decided to try and make a career as a freelance translator and editor and I started Conifer editing/translations. In my first six months of business I have translated a popular scientific biology book, done website localization for a manufacturer of microscopes and other instruments and a photographer, and I am working hard to expand my portfolio. I translate English to Dutch as well as Dutch to English. My specialty is probably science or technology related material, but I am also getting well-versed in computer/website/software vocabulary.

I feel one of my best assets as a translator is that I have lived in the United`States and Australia for seven years. Because of this experience I am very fluent in the English language, but I also have a deep knowledge of the culture which helps me not only in understanding slang and cultural references, but also in recognizing the exact nuance which needs to be conveyed. I am meticulous, reliable and strive to deliver a perfect product for competitive rates.
