I grew up speaking three languages: German, English and Afrikaans. I studied all three languages at University, and two years of French as well. I have always been interested in languages, and after completing my PhD, I was Senior Lecturer in Languages at a British university for nearly 17 years. I also studied elementary Portuguese, and I like reading books in Dutch and Flemish. 

I have completed many translations over the years, even while I was still studying. I find translations fascinating because computers will never be able to do this work to perfection as they cannot grasp e.g. nuances and insinuations.
