About me

I have been working as an independent language professional since 2019. Having previously worked for the Belgian government in a variety of roles, I combine a passion for languages with experience in business, IT and law. I work to a high professional standard, focusing on quality and customer satisfaction.

 

Projects

Over the course of my career, I have built up extensive experience in translating, editing and writing content on a broad range of subjects and for diverse target audiences.

Customer-focused communication

Rendering content in clear and effective Dutch, which is tailored to the target audience: I acquired this skill while working for the Belgian government, explaining complex laws and regulations in an accessible way to widely divergent audiences.

Sample projects

  • Brochures and flyers

  • Product and service catalogues

  • Document templates and forms

  • Newsletters and web content

  • Guidelines and (software) manuals

Corporate communications

As a former project coordinator and change manager, I know the value of accurate and well-written business documentation for smooth decision-making. 


Sample projects 

  • Procurement: specifications, RFI/RFP, public tenders

  • Project documentation

  • Presentations

  • Annual reports and audit reports

  • Internal communications and training materials

IT and software

I have worked on IT projects since 2006, first as a subject matter expert supporting development, testing and training, and later as a project manager in charge of procurement, coordination with vendors, change management and user training. 


Sample projects

  • Procurement and evaluation of IT products

  • User interfaces

  • Licence agreements

  • Privacy and security policies

  • Documentation, manuals and help files

Legal translation

I started my professional career as a litigation manager, briefing lawyers on legal actions and resolving disputes through judicial means. As my field of work (social security) touched on many aspects of business and society, I acquired practical knowledge of many branches of law, including commercial and corporate law, civil law, privacy law, tax law, employment law, European and international law.

Sample projects

  • Terms and conditions

  • Contracts

  • Privacy statements

  • Articles of association/incorporation

  • Briefs

Informative and journalistic content

Given my diverse professional background and having a variety of interests, my work encompasses a range of general interest topics, such as current affairs, social issues, politics, art and culture, films and television, music, philosophy, history, literature, health, tourism and travel.
