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)

Expert Rating

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)

Expert Rating

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.
