Dear possible future customer

My name is Dimitri Vandenborn, a Dutch speaking Belgian living close to the Dutch and German border. I'm a commercial engineer in business informatics and also have an MBA degree (English). Next to my main job on the IT-department in a utilities company, I've got an additional job as a freelance translator in my own company Helios Consulting bvba. I spend quite some time during the evenings and in the weekend doing translation projects, mostly Dutch to English, or vice versa.

In august 2006 I discovered the website and I hoped to build some interesting relationships with people or companies which needed help with translations to the Dutch language. Before I only had contact with some Belgian or Dutch companies which needed translations to the Dutch languages. Till now has helped me very well in finding trustworthy and very good international clients.

The two strengths I have to offer are:

- First of all my flexibility, since I’m able to work outside business hours (in the evenings or in the weekends) in the surrounding time zones. So a request that comes in late in the afternoon or the evening can be handled by the next morning. That already has proven to be very useful for some customers for proofreading as well as translation.

- The quality of my translations, because I only accept projects from which the topic lies in my interests and for which I’m familiar with the terminology to meet the quality standards of the customer. And next to that the proofreading that my lovely wife takes care of. Although she doesn’t always understand what a text might be about, she’s always able to point out some corrections that further improve my translation.

The topics in which I’m interested and in which I do translation projects are:

-Information technology (hardware and software)

- Marketing

- Consumer electronics (I really like the latest gadgets)

- Subtitling

- SAP (ERP-package)

- Automotive

- Technical manuals

- Code of conducts

During the last years I’ve done quite some interesting translation projects. The list would be too long to list them all so I’ll only mention the projects on which I’m really proud I’ve worked on them:

- Information technology (hardware and software)

o Translation of content for Microsoft Surface

o Translation of a manual for several Soundblaster products

o Translation of technical IT-related documents for Rabobank

o Translation of all kinds of games, going from poker to mobile games to bigger games on PC/console (translating manuals or in game texts)

o Translation or the Orbitz travel website and the China Airlines website

- Consumer electronics

o Translation of technical information sheets from Apple iMac and MacBook

o Translation of the iPhone app Airsharing (several versions)

- Subtitling

o The Simpsons


- SAP (ERP-package)

o Translation of quite some SAP-manuals

- Automotive

o Translation of the manuals for Beisbarth

- Technical manuals

o Localization of content of (Technical machines for food processing)

o Translation of manuals for Xerox

- Codes of conduct

o Translation and proofreading of business conduct policies for several companies

- Eurocom (

- Mogi (

- Global Textware (

- Melchior (

- Verztec (
