A native speaker of both Dutch (the language spoken in the Netherlands) and Flemish (its variant spoken in the northern part of Belgium), I am also fluent in Spanish and English.

I am specialized in technical translations and business/commercial related documents.

My background as qualified sales assistant in technological products (18 years) has given me the right experience to translate in fields like telecommunications, multimedia, electronic devices, audio, video, recording techniques, PA systems, microphones, amplifiers, retail, internet and e-commerce.

Ecology and alternative energy are also topics I find fascinating and I have both written and translated in these fields on different occasions.

Dutch is my native language, so I translate exclusively into Dutch and its main variant, Flemish.

I love my profession and I am committed to delivering to you the finest, most accurate human translation possible.

I’m using memoQ, the most advanced translation tool.
