CV/Resume English (PDF)
I am working as a translator and interpreter of Japanese, English and Dutch since 2006 (sworn since 2009).

After obtaining my first M.A. from the Japanese Studies Department at Ghent University (with Great Distinction), I was awarded with a Japanese Government scholarship to study Japanese literature at the prestigious universities of Waseda and Sophia (obtaining a second M.A. with the maximum GPA at the latter).
I lived in Tokyo for nearly 5 years and now combine a position as part-time lecturer at the Ghent University Japanese Studies Department with translation and interpretation work.

Over 17 years of practicing the Japanese language have honed my Japanese skills to a superb level, which allowed me to attain the exceptionally high JLPT score of 362. Although Dutch is my mother tongue, I also dare say my command of English is close to native level. Attesting to this are my TOEIC (950) and TOEFL iBT (110) scores.

For more information, please have a look at the website of my company, Waran Translations:
