I am a Dutch national living in the Republic of Belarus, translating full time since 2008.

Earlier, I worked as a teacher of biology and chemistry for various schools in The Netherlands.

Also I worked for the sub-faculties of Biology and Life Sciences & Technology at Groningen University, organising courses of Science and Society for some years.

I focus on what I like and what I do best – translating into Dutch within my fields of expertise. My rates reflect investments in education, training, and quality assurance.

I use SDL Trados Studio 2011

Send me an email at for more information and rates. Please note that I do not work with agencies from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, China, India, the Middle East, and Africa.

How I work

1. Before accepting any task, I review the document and assess whether it falls within my fields of expertise.
2. Before starting the actual translation, I read through the document and perform (Internet) research on the topic involved.
3. After the translation, I perform consistency checks to ensure terminology is translated the same way throughout the document.
4. I perform a spelling check and proofread the document on screen.
5. Next, I send the file to my trusted editor/proofreader.
6. After processing the proofreader's adjustments, I print the document, lay down on my sofa and read through the entire file, pencil in hand to catch any imperfections left.
7. If the client performs their own proofreading afterwards, I work with the client in order to ensure they receive a product that is optimally suited to their tastes and preferences.
