| Translation and other services
| Of the services I offer, translation is the work I do
most frequently. I was born in the Netherlands, so I
master the Dutch language at native level and beyond. For
long periods in my life I have lived and worked abroad,
using the English and German language. I have studied,
worked and gained experience in a wide variety of fields,
ranging from computer science and the internet to tourism,
business and philosophy. These are the fields I specialize
There is another page on this site that will tell you a
bit more about my person, so here I will just tell you
what I can do for you. I think it's important to tell you
honestly and clearly what it is you're getting and what
not. I am not a sworn and certified translator, so I'm not
allowed to translate "official" legal documents, but...
...I am a very good translator with an excellent feeling
for languages and interests in a wide range of subjects. I
work accurately and conscientiously. I am reliable,
straightforward and honest. I always keep a promise, so I
will only accept an order of which I'm sure I will be able
to fulfil the conditions and obligations.
| These are the language pairs I work
I speak, write and understand Dutch at native, and English
and German at near-native level.
I have a lot of personal and professional experience in
all three languages, so I could probably reverse these
language pairs and still be pretty good at it, but a
professional translation needs to be better than good. All
it needs is one little error a native writer would never
make, and a text will look funny. It needs to be perfect.
That is why, like most professional translators, I only
use my native language as a target, and my secondary
languages as a source, and that is also why my
proofreading and editing service is limited to Dutch only.
