Professional practices Hans Geluk endorses's Professional Guidelines.

Dutch by birth, in 1998 relocated to Barcelona where I combined a 13-year career in Financial Services and HR at a multinational company with translation projects in the fields of Human Resources, Management, Learning & Development, Employee Engagement, Human Rights, Linguistics, and Advertisement.

Thorough knowledge of Catalan/Spanish language and culture, and of Spanish labour law. Certified by several large and small translation companies for translations from English, Spanish and Catalan into Dutch, and from Dutch into Spanish and Catalan. My translations into Spanish and Catalan always include a review by a native speaker. I am interested in both business and literary translation.

I hold an MA in Dutch Linguistics (Leiden University, 1998), a Master's in Human Resource Management (EADA Barcelona, 2010), and an MA in Translation with distinction (London Metropolitan University, 2014). I gained membership of both the Dutch and Catalan Translators' Associations, NGTV and Aptic, in 2015.

I work narrowly together with a Spanish/Catalan translator (Eduard Playà) and together we can guarantee a complete service offering between the languages Dutch and Spanish/Catalan, providing quality translations that are always translated and reviewed by two native speakers. This additional review is always included in our competitive rates.
