About me

In the 1990's I was a full-time freelance translator. My main project (> 750,000 words) during this period was translating Cap Volmac's (now Cap Gemini) System Development Workbench software manuals from Dutch to English. There is a Wiki article on this software at:

I then worked for some 20 years in commercial IT as an Oracle database administrator until August 2017. During this period I kept up my language skills through extensive reading.

In November 2017, I returned to full-time translating and since then have translated and/or proofread various tasks for 5 different agencies, including a company car scheme contract, a telecoms contract, office furniture website, technical tender document, holiday home rental website, medical information leaflet and an articles of association document.
