I am an award-winning Dutch medical and scientific translator offering the best of two worlds: a BComn degree (equivalent to BA) in translation and an MSc degree in agronomy/molecular biology, topped off with over a decade of industry-relevant work experience (crop protection regulatory affairs) and seven years of freelance translation experience.

    “When it comes to English to Dutch translations in the life sciences, in particular but not limited to the agricultural domain, there's really no one better than Edith.” – Bert Keurentjes, head of translation department at Wageningen in’to Languages

Contact me for top-notch English>Dutch translations with on-time delivery in any of the following areas:

  • Health and medicine, pharmaceuticals (SPCs, PILs), clinical research (ICFs, study protocols), medical questionnaires
  • Arable agriculture, horticulture, biological and chemical crop protection, fertilisers, plant breeding (basically, anything that has to do with plant production)
  • Nutrition, food safety/HACCP, product labels for plant-based food and nutritional supplements 
  • Genetics, molecular biology, microbiology, virology, immunology, vaccinology, laboratory testing
  • MSDSs/safety data sheets
  • Environment, climate change, sustainability

I am the winner of two English-Dutch ProZ translation contests and won joint first prize at a local Dutch spelling contest ('dictee'), so you can count on idiomatic, impeccable Dutch.

I work with CAT software on a daily basis and am a proficient user of translation memories, glossaries and QA tools for optimal quality and consistency.

    "Edith is a very professional colleague. We worked together on several English into Dutch projects related to clinical trials and were very happy to have her onboard. She has technical knowledge and also knows how to manage CAT tools and Office well." – Nicole Dolgner, translator and project manager at MEDICRO GmbH
