Professional practices Machteld Sohier endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I have been working as a translator/proofreader/revisor from English and German to Dutch (Belgian variant) for more than 4 years now. 

My specialisations are medical and technical translation. I also translate general, legal and touristic texts.

I work as a certified translator too for the languages Dutch, English, German and French, both as source and as target languages.

I have a master in Germanic Philology (University of Leuven (Belgium)) and a bachelor in Applied Linguistics (University of Ghent (Belgium)).

Translating is more than just a job for me, it is a passion.
