Good day, my name is Marcel. I live in the Netherlands and I am a native speaker of Dutch. I translate and edit Dutch, Afrikaans, and English texts. I speak seven languages, four of which fluently: Dutch, English, Afrikaans, and German.

I am conducting research for my Master's thesis in Linguistics at Leiden University. It will focus on linguistic code-switching in the Afrikaans speech communities in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

As a part of my M.A. programme at university I have completed the English > Dutch and Dutch > English advanced translation course.

I have done translations for web-sites, translated research proposals, lyrics for stage artists and sociopolitical organisations in which Afrikaans, English and Dutch were target and source languages.

Another substantial part of my work is proofreading, correcting and editing Dutch and English (academic) texts written by non-native speakers of these languages.

I also give private Afrikaans and Dutch language classes.
