Translating

Translations from Dutch to English
In general I translate longer texts (minimum 1,000 words) from Dutch to English, with reasonable deadlines. As you will see when you read my About Me page, I am a perfectionist, and I want to be sure that what I deliver is the best it can be. That’s why I don’t enjoy short rush jobs. Of course I make exceptions for existing clients.

Areas of work
As a general rule, I translate in the field of social sciences. I have translated texts related to marketing, public relations, travel, biography, police, history, politics, war, well-being, sports, and literature. I do not do any legal, medical, or technical translating.

Types of Texts
I have translated journal articles, conference presentations, academic theses, (non-)fiction books, short stories, samples (usually about 30 pages) of Dutch literature for promotion purposes, book reviews, short author biographies, magazine articles, and I have subtitled film.
