I provide translation/proofreading/editing from English and German to Dutch (Belgian variant). 

I have been working as a freelance translator since October 2016. My specialisations are medical and technical translation.

I also work as a certified translator for the languages Dutch, English, German and French, both as source and as target languages.

I have a master in Germanic Philology (University of Leuven (Belgium)) and a bachelor in Applied Linguistics (University of Ghent (Belgium)).

Translating is more than just a job for me, it is a passion.
