Yves De Page - condensed CV

Greek-Latin humanities in Dutch, followed by three years Architecture in French. One year serving the Belgian army, based in Germany.
My professional career started in the automotive industry in ‘72 as a technical translator for Honda Motor in Aalst, Belgium. After that, I switched to construction machinery, and the bulk of my experience spreads over 20 years with Bobcat skid-steer loaders and mini-excavators, in the consecutive positions of demonstrator, service engineer, product sales trainer and product manager.
As product manager, my responsibilities consisted of:
-hands-on evaluation of own and competitive units and attachments
-recommendation of improvements to factory engineering and experimentation in the field
-creation of -product introduction reports
-product manuals
-competitive reports and survey charts
-translate above documents into French, Dutch, and (with proof-reading) in German
-implement and update salesman training programs and handouts
-conduct product training sessions in English, French, Dutch and German
Since 1993, I am a free-lance translator of technical documents of various areas of activity, into French (mainly) and into Dutch:
Automotive industry (Honda)
Construction and earthmoving equipment (Bobcat, Ingersoll-Rand, Komatsu, Kobelco, Thomas, Alitec)
Agricultural equipment (Steketee, Amac)
Industrial applications (Smits, LWC, codified nomenclature for iron and steel industry)
Industrial machines (WTW, Ensival, Mosca)
Electronic equipment (Columbus, Jungheinrich)
Specifications lists (Brussels- North railway station)
Several reports for professional magazines (laser cutting, GPS)
