I translate text from technical manuals to books on pregnancy, from bank letters to novels... Diversity keeps my translations fresh and accurate. But my heart lies in legal and medical translations. I love getting stuck into difficult texts!
After receiving my degree in English literature from the University of Groningen in 1996 and doing an extra post-doctoral MA in Belfast, I worked for two publishing houses as project manager and editor. I already did some translation work on the side, and when it all became too much, I quit my job and started my own company, Babylonia Vertalingen, in 2000.
I work for publishing houses, production companies, businesses and private individuals.
In 2008, I was sworn in as a translator, which enables me to offer companies the service of translating legal documents from and into Dutch and English.
Besides being a translator, I am also a dedicated mother of 2, an avid knitter, spinner and weaver. In my spare time, if I have any, I translate Dutch plays into Frisian, cycle around Friesland and work in my garden.
