Good translation requires precision, sensitivity and creativity.
I was born to English-speaking parents in a former British colony in Africa where I was raised and where I received a thorough British education. Immigrating to the Netherlands some twenty years ago deepened my sensitivity to the use (and misuse) of the English language as well as enabling me to become fluent in Dutch.
My background in education and training coupled with an inherent appreciation of excellence have contribute to my desire to realise accurate and fluent translations which reflect as closely as possible the style and intention of the original text. My experience and involvement with music and other performance arts makes me keenly aware of the importance of clarity in communication and the role that nuance and creativity play in finding just the right tone.
Assignments I have worked on have included translating and/or correcting many different types of text such as research proposals, course material, articles and essays, promotional texts, brochures, press releases, television and radio scripts, advertisements, web texts, newspaper articles and correspondence, and have covered a wide range of fields including music, art, culture, history, architecture, design, fashion, advertising, healthcare, logistics, agriculture, horticulture and floriculture, building and renovation projects, education, sports.
