Translator of English - Dutch and Dutch text editor.
Over the years I have translated and edited book projects, scientific abstracts and related texts, marketing brochures, legal and technical texts, manuals, and websites.
My main areas of expertise are: medical (scientific), marketing, techical, and literature.
As a former desk editor for an international publishing house I can also be of benefit for any publishing project.
I am a literary enthusiast, a keen writer with almost 10 years of medical scientific experience at the Erasmus MC Rotterdam.
I love to tinker with words to create smooth, easy to read and well-balanced sentences. Hence my love of poetry, but also of well-writen prose and other kind of stories.
I work with the CAT-tools Trados and OmegaT, and I took courses in SEO for translators.
I have a Cambridge Advanced Engllish C2 certificate.
I have completed the BSc course 'General Translating Skills' (ITV Hogeschool)
Currently unavailable for new assignments due to my commitment to ongoing long-term projects, except for literary assignments.
