UPDATE June 2013 - My apologies to everybody who has tried contacting me as of last December. I have been unable to accept projects as a result of personal problems. Things are back to normal and I am now able to accept projects again. Thank you for your understanding. Bilingual and native speaker of English and Dutch with an extensive translating career spanning three decades. Experience ranging from simple newspaper articles and how-to manuals to intricate technical and legal papers, ICT policy and complex (medical) transcriptions. Besides that I offer subtitle transcription, translation and embedding.

Experience

Ttranslator Dutch-English and vice versa

Jan 1983

As native and bilingual speaker of both Dutch and English (with the emphasis on translating from Dutch into English) I have translated now for nearly 30 years. With a diverse experience ranging from small articles and how-to manuals to full length novels, software manuals and (medical) transcriptions, the emphasis has been predominantly on technical, medical, legal and automotive work. In translating texts, my forté lies in the fact that most of my work actually does not read as a translation.

Education

Dutch Law

2004 - 2012 (8 years)

General History

1989 - 1991 (2 years)

Certifications

Understanding differences in British and American English (2011)

Certificate indicating an understanding of the subtle - and sometimes not so subtle - differences between UK and US English. An official confirmation of one of my translating skills.

Human Body Fundamentals Test (2011)

Certification proving basic anatomy and body fundamentals knowledge. My knowledge and understanding goes beyond this, though. I have, for example, extensive experience in both transcribing medical interviews and procedures, as well as in translating medical articles and texts.
