I'm a UK based Dutch / Flemish native speaker with excellent written and spoken English and French skills. Having had a language focus in my formal education with certification in Commerce and Languages, St. Aloysius, Antwerp, Belgium, and Office and Commercial Languages, HAM Malines, Belgium, plus over 20 years of ongoing usage of the above languages; I'm able to offer practical, fluent, and down-to-earth translations. I have lived in Europe, the UK and the United States with my American spouse, who with her many years of diverse teaching and proofreading experience offers me a solid back-up in my translating.
I look forward to serving you with accuracy and affordability in all your translating and interpreting needs.

Affordability and Accuracy

Ik ben een in de UK wonende Nederlands/Vlaamse inheemse spreker met uitstekende gesproken en geschreven Engelse - Franse taalvaardigheden. Op studie niveau heb ik een succesvolle Handel en Talen opleiding genoten met bijbehorende certificatie. (Ik bezocht de volgende Belgische scholen St. Aloysius - Mortsel, HAM - Mechelen). Tijdens mijn school opleiding was de focus taalgericht en door meer dan 20 jaar ervaring in de boven vernoemde talen, die nog steeds groeit, kan ik praktische, vloeiende en realistische vertalingen aanbieden. Ik heb zowel, samen met mijn Amerikaanse echtgenote, in Europa, de Verenigde Staten en het Verenigd Koninkrijk gewoond. Mijn vrouw, die kan bogen op een gevarieerde, jarenlange onderwijs- en proeflezerervaring, staat er borg voor dat mijn vertalingen correct en nauwkeurig zijn.
Ik kijk ernaar uit om hulp te bieden bij alle vertalingen. Nauwkeurigheid en een redelijke prijs zijn absolute kenmerken.
Nauwkeurig en Betaalbaar

Below, you will find my CV and contact information.
Thank- you for your consideration.
