Professional practices Henk Sanderson endorses's Professional Guidelines.
High school: 6 years gymnasium (i.e. French, English, German, Dutch, Latin, Greek, mathematics and physics) offered me a very strong background in languages (emphasis on translation of difficult texts into Dutch, including correct grammar and spelling).
Graduated in Electrical Engineering at the Technical University of Delft, The Netherlands in 1966.

The combination of these two studies with 25 years of industrial experience in many foreign countries (USA, Germany, France, Austria) and 20 years of (mostly technical) translations guarantees high quality and reliability of my work.

Areas of industrial work:
- Medical Electronics
- Astronomical Satellite Design
- Research on Video Disc
- Research and Development of Video Recorders
- Support and Development of Computer Aided Design for Electronics

Translations in a broad area since 1992:
- User Manuals for Electronic Consumer Products
- User Manuals for Heavy Construction Equipment
- Commercial / Technical Brochures
- Financial Reports / Press Releases
- HR Department paperwork
- Technical Part Catalogs...
and many more (over 2000 translations)
