Fully bilingual in Dutch and English, I started out in animal husbandry and veterinary medicine, but moved on to construction and engineering, working in sales and communication for an international wholesaler. In the course of my in-house career, I translated numerous machinery user manuals and material safety data sheets. Dutch and English are my main working languages, but I speak another three and am working on learning a fourth; how else could I possibly feed my book addiction?

Since going freelance in 2013, projects have included a 120-page magazine about injectables for a leading pharma supplier, a 160-page code of practice for classifying gas explosion hazard areas for a major global oil and gas company, and extensive scientific reference documents for forensic psychological evaluation of perpetrators of sexual assault and domestic violence. Although I have translated a number of books, including travel journals, science fiction novels, and erotica, my current focus is on high-precision translation services for technical and medical companies.
