Translation

Experience

During my master’s degree in translation I learned how to tackle a wide variety of text types, from short stories and graphic novels to bylaws and criminal case judgments. Some examples of text types I’ve translated professionally are scholarly articles, company newsletters, music reviews, literary texts, and non-fiction texts.

I translate from Dutch to English (American English and British English) as well as from English to Dutch.

Costs

Translation costs are based on a per-word rate. Total costs are based on the word count of the text for translation (source text). Quotations exclude 21% VAT unless otherwise specified.

A surcharge applies to rush orders (delivery within 48 hours) and weekend commissions.

Approach

Additional information The more information I have (e.g., about the purpose and target readership of the translated text), the better I can adjust the translation to your wishes. For Dutch-to-English translations it’s important for me to know whether you would like me to use American English or British English.

Word comments To avoid introducing inaccuracies, I occasionally use Word Comments to explain my interpretation of a phrase and/or provide a translation for another possible interpretation.
