ATIA certified translator from Dutch to English (1998).

About me
I was born in the Netherlands but moved to Venezuela when I was 7. I Attended an English elementary school there, learned Spanish, and that was the beginning of my love for languages. Back in the Netherlands to attend High School, I took Latin and classic Greek, Dutch, French, English and German.

After two years in university I immigrated to Canada and eventually completed my education here with degrees in psychology and family studies and a minor in legal studies. My interest in law, especially family law, dates from that time. After I became a member I attended a large number of webinars on various aspects of legal translation.

Translation experience
Since 1996 I have worked with translation agencies and direct clients in Canada, the US, the UK and Europe on a variety of documents. What's important to me is capturing not only the meaning but also the tone and intent of a text, knowing when to stay close to the text and when to translate more freely.

Some examples of documents I have translated:
- Research publications (education, healthcare, humanities, social sciences)
- Legal (contracts, court rulings, employment/labor agreements
- Medical (journal articles, documentation for research and clinical trials)
- Business (annual reports, employee-guidebooks, facility management manuals)
- Immigration and asylum applications and appeals
- Personal documents (diplomas, course outlines, certificates, CVs)

Editing experience
- 3 years as managing editor, Canadian Medical Education Journal
- Editing texts for publication (research, business, marketing, tourism)
- Editing texts for Translators Without Borders
- Editing/adapting ESL and variations of English
