Update August 2018: I specialized further in cryptocurrency and blockchain projects. After having contributed translations as a volunteer, I'm proud to be funded by donations from the Monero community in order to translate two websites and the Monerujo app into Dutch.
My mission is to help people and computers understand each other. Since I have a background in both literature and IT, I’m able to explain technical issues in natural, fluent translations. It's not just a matter of words. As an ex-programmer, I understand how software works.
I translate business software, software documentation, websites and financial texts from English to Dutch, and I also proofread translations in these fields. My most important skills are consistency in style and terminology, concise writing and general knowledge.
Please note that the title of my presentation 'Why you should lower your rates' is ironic.
