I am a Sworn Translator in English/Portuguese and French. In Suriname I function as an ad hoc interpreter as well (interpreter-translator). I graduated as a Translator NL/EN/PT at the Erasmus Institute, the Department of Applied Linguistics, in Brussels/Belgium, in 1996. I am specialized in Economic/Legal/Medical/Slightly Technical and IT-related Translation. I did a real translation study in Europe and therefore also studied Dutch which is the official language in Suriname (and my mother tongue).
I obtained the Diploma French of Higher Secondary Technical Education and the Diploma French of Higher Secondary Technical Education (Specialisation Business French) at the VTI, the Institute for Adult Evening Education of the Brussels Chamber of Commerce and Industry in 1996 and 1997. French is my fourth language (D-language). In the summer of 2016 I started an online 4-year Bachelor level Translation Studies Course FR-NL/NL-FR at the Dutch LOI.

I have acquired broad working experience through a variety of interesting jobs in the several languages (not all are mentioned in my CV). I also worked part-time as a Translator Dutch, English, French, at the French Embassy in Paramaribo/Suriname, from 2007 till 2008. From 1997 till 1998 I worked for the Surinamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Embassy of Suriname/Brussels-Belgium) and then I took a sabbatical year and afterwards I started my own translation bureau Interlingua on October 1, 2000.

I offer my services to US, European, Caribbean, South American agencies, companies, organizations which do business with Suriname or not.
