I strive to deliver high quality translations at expert level. In editing and proofreading, I do not only weed out the typo's, but also correct bad spelling, punctuation and wording, check if the right terminology is used, check for localisation issues, and check if the text matches the specific demands of you and your client. I can also check the validity and usefullness of questionnaires and surveys (validation).
