Bio

Court-sworn native English translator (Dutch to English) with an academic background in languages and natural sciences. 


I was born in Cape Town, South Africa. Eight years later we moved to Africa's mountain kingdom, Lesotho, where I attended a British Primary School and completed my GCE 'O' levels at Machabeng International High School. At the age of 16 I moved to the Netherlands, where I learned Dutch and completed Pre-University Education (VWO). I studied Biology at the University of Utrecht, where I had the option of submitting assignments and giving presentations in English. As I wished to combine my interest in natural sciences with a career involving languages, I completed a Dutch-English translation course in 1996 and became a court-sworn translator.  I worked on legal and financial translation and revision projects as an in-house translator for 13 years. 


Besides translating for a wide range of clients, mostly in the fields of Law, Insurance, Appraisals, Architecture, Infrastructure & Environment, Energy Industry, my in-house activities also involved translation memory and terminology management, proofreading, Windows and Trados troubleshooting and contributing to company strategy. In 2009, I launched my freelance business and currently operate from Spain and France.

Keywords: Fast, reliable, 15 years in-house and freelance experience, excellent computer and CAT skills, contracts, law, finance, real estate, appraisals, architecture, insurance, pensions, employment.
