Working as a legal expert and translator in Dutch and English since 1998. Professional full-time translator since 2012. Localising online products and web content since 2013. Accurate and timely.

I am a legal professional and a native Dutch speaker with a very good command of English. For years, translating complicated text correctly and with context has been a necessary side-activity to my other work. Prompted by positive feedback and by the observation that I really enjoy this work, I decided to take this part of my business one step further and to start offering translations as a freelancer.

In recent years, I have added localisation (including advice, QA and creating marketing-oriented content) and the translation of fast-moving, web-based content to my portfolio.
