Bio
Freelance translator English to Dutch specialising in touristism, health and cosmetics marketing texts

I am a qualified, experienced and enthusiastic freelance translator of English into Dutch and vice versa. I specialise mainly in (marketing) translations in the fields of tourism, beauty/cosmetics and health/wellness field. Marketing texts often require a more creative than literal approach, and attention to detail. That's why I deliver 'creative and cosmetic' translations!

My native language is Dutch, and after much study and practise I consider myself near-native in English. I speak good Hebrew, but not yet good enough to translate from. I have learned Spanish, French and German in the past, but they have gone a bit rusty from lack of use... I enjoy reading and writing in several languages, and I have a good eye for detail and spelling.

I studied English Language and Literature, specialising in Translation, at Utrecht University. After my graduation in 2003, I emigrated to Israel where I now live with my husband and, three bilingual little boys. Because I live in Israel, I am available for translation work on Sundays and I can sometimes be more flexible in my rates.

Because of my working experience in tourism and health/cosmetics, I specialise mainly in (marketing) texts in those fields. However I also have translation experience in other fields, such as: consumer electronics, design furniture, popular science and software localisation. My translation experience includes both translating and proofreading, mostly from English to Dutch but also vice versa. I have translated texts, websites, software strings, brochures, and some children's books.
