I am an award-winning Dutch life science 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 six 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
