Business and Finance
More than 20 years of translation experience working from Dutch to English (mother tongue) in a variety of fields, including management, human resources, horticulture, mobility and logistics.
Before I started translating and editing, I was a management consultant for a large international consulting organsiation and I specialised in IT and logistics.
IT matters have always held my interest and I'm currenlty a beta tester for DejaVu.
In 2018 I took the ITI assessment and am now MITI, a fully quailified member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting.
