I am a social-ecological scientist with 30 years of career experience. I hold a doctorate degree from the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt University in Greifswald, Germany. My expertise includes editing of books, articles and papers in English and Afrikaans. A few years ago I have been the editor of a book that was published by UNESCO therefore I have experience in editing and correcting texts from non-native English speakers. Currently I am the main editor of a planning handbook that is to be published in English. I translate from English to Afrikaans and also from Afrikaans to English.
