Dear reader,

Are you looking for a freelance translator who specialises in clear, understandable language? Who switches from technical documents to corporate storytelling without any effort? Who knows what makes a good text and good service? Then you have come to the right place.

I partly grew up in Ireland and received three degrees in English, literature and linguistics from Utrecht University, The Netherlands. I founded my translation agency After Ink in Delft, near The Hague. The name After Ink playfully refers to the digital communication era we are living in.

It is my mission to exceed your expectations, helping you with all your linguistic needs. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information at any time through or at: info[at]

Kind regards,

M. Takens
