Specialities: Financial/business, literature, art, politics, speeches, press releases. I am a native English-speaker (UK), a translator and teacher of English as a foreign language and spent 14 years in Flanders (the Dutch-speaking area of Belgium), as well as being married to a Fleming for 27 years, so I have a thorough knowledge of both English and Dutch/Flemish. I have a BA (Honours) in Classics (Latin and Greek) and an MA (distinction) in Modern Dutch Studies, including courses in practical and literary translation.
For many years I have translated speeches, articles and other documents for Belgian embassies and ministries. In particular, I translated all articles for Belgian Events, a bi-monthly publication of the Belgian Embassy in London, from 1997 -2002. Since 1998 I have been translating literary texts for The Low Countries, a cultural year book produced by Stichting Ons Erfdeel. I also translate speeches, press releases etc for Bekaert, a leading Belgian company.
