My name is Erik and one of my most vivid childhood memories is the opening of Europe's borders in the 1990s when we could suddenly drive across the continent without ever stopping at a border post. I remember the awe and optimism of it all like it was yesterday. It's a feeling I haven't let go of since.
Since then, I've lived in the Netherlands, in England and in Italy and I've studied English, French, German and Italian.
With a university degree in European Studies in my pocket, I set out to find an international job and in 2009, I began working for an organization that supported exporters. I quickly found myself translating contracts, websites and product manuals, alongside other assignments such as the organization of trade shows and B2B-events where I helped bridge culture and language barriers.
If you're looking to cross a border with your products or services and you'd like some reliable help with translations from someone who knows what he's doing and who takes the time to get to know your company; then I'm your man!
