YOUR CHOICE: HIRE MULTIPLE BILINGUAL TRANSLATORS OR HIRE ONE POLYGLOT TRANSLATOR
What do you prefer?
– Try hire MULTIPLE translators who know your business and the terminology of your industry in various countries, or
– Hire ONE single polyglot translator who knows your business and who trained and worked in several industries – including yours – in different countries.

I am a professional polyglot translator, with over 30 years of translation experience, trained and with a professional background in several industries who worked in different countries.

My two native languages are:
– Dutch, as spoken in the Netherlands where I was born, and
– English (American as well as British).
English is the other language I was partially raised with and applied a lot while being raised, educated and working in several countries. Those experiences also provided me with the opportunity to become fluent in German, Spanish and French.

What I offer my translation customer is quite unique:

1.  A polyglot, not just a bilingual translator.
2. Education, training, life-work experience with cultures in several countries in Europe, the USA, the Middle East and South-America.
3. Work experience with professional cultures and jargon in several countries and languages
4. A uniquely broad career and education background in several industries, which allows me to provide multi-industry translation combinations such as financial-legal-IT, legal–medical-IT, construction-IT-financial, horticulture-IT-legal, construction-legal-agriculture and many more
5. A rigorous focus on protecting the interests of my business customers, having owned and managed several small businesses, so I am aware of the need for confidentiality, accuracy and timeliness
