I started translating on a part-time basis in 1994, whilst I was working in international nature conservation. In 1996, I enrolled in ITV Hogeschool voor vertalers (Utrecht, the Netherlands) where I received my Bachelors degree in English-Dutch translations. I have been translating full time from 2001. I am a native Dutch speaker, have lived and studied in North America and Spain and have been based on the Isle of Wight (UK) since 2003.

My main areas of interest are tourism, cookery and psychology. However I have made translations in most topics such as business, websites, technical texts, IT, medical/health, marketing and general business. Therefore I am happy to consider most fields; just send a sample of your text and I will confirm that I am able to take on the translation.

To date I have translated over 3 million words, with an estimated 482,000 words translated/proofread in 2008. Past subject areas include IT (574,000 words), technical texts (595,000 words), marketing text (227,000 words), general business documents (310,000 words), tourism (196,000 words), medical/health (86,000 words), cookery (187,000 words) and psychology (9100 words).
