Professional practices Maarten Fortuin endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.0).
Fed up with sitting in traffic jams for an hour a day and convinced there is more I can do for a sustainable world, I established myself as a freelancer in 2007.

I have worked abroad and for internationally operating companies for years, in various trades.
This provides me with hands-on experience with a wide range of subjects, as well as a thourough practical knowledge of the languages I studied.
Since I love language and writing and being an incurable perfectionist, becoming a translator was only logical.

Having worked mainly in the maritime and graphical sectors, it wasn't long before I specialised in technical translations.

In 2008 I expanded my activities with subtitling after following a course here in Hilversum.
