I am a seasoned translation service provider, specializing in creative adaptation of advertising and marketing copy.

I studied at the State School of Translation in Maastricht (The Netherlands), where I graduated in 1989. I am a member of the Netherlands Society of Interpreters and Translators (NGTV) and have been a full-time self-employed translation professional since 1991.

As a native speaker of Dutch, I only translate from English into Dutch and from French into Dutch. I mostly deal with advertisements, brochures, contracts, magazines, newsletters, press releases, surveys, training manuals, and web sites.

In my spare time, I do my bit to make the world a little better, with a focus on biodiversity, closed-loop systems, material recycling, soil fertility, sustainable energy and water conservation.
