Professional translator since 2004.
I translate from German, English and French into my mother tongue Dutch.

Education: academic translation study at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands. Minors in communication, management and Spanish.

Fields of specialization
I have translated texts in almost every field, but I specialize in:

Marketing & PR
Business communication
Fashion & Interior Styling
Arts & Architecture
Travel & Tourism
Beauty & Cosmetics
Horses & Equitation
Food & Wine

In each of these fields, I have worked for renowned brands. Accuracy and respect for deadlines are very important to me, as is a translation that communicates the right message to the right target group.

I provide quick, but above all accurate translations. Average capacity 1800-2500 words/day, depending on the source text.

Keywords: Ads, Communication, Manuals, Brochures, Media, Business, Marketing, wervend, reclame, tourism, Trados, beauty, cosmetics, architecture, target group, groupe cible, respect for deadlines
