Languages and specialisms


German and Dutch: My native tongue is German. But having spent most of my life in the Netherlands, I translate with equal ease in both directions.

Spanish: I also translate from these languages into Spanish and vice versa. I have spent years in Latin America and I passed the Dutch state examination as interpreter and translator of the Spanish language.

English and French: Furthermore, I translate from English and from French into the above three languages, especially medical texts. In fact, most of my medical translations are from English.

So, my directions of translation are as follows:

From Dutch, English, French, German or Spanish
To Dutch, German or Spanish


My specialties (but not exclusive) are
Agriculture (cultivation of crops, forestry, animal husbandry, organic farming, agricultural policy...)
Medicine (clinical studies, pharmacology, PIL, SPC, medical technology, expert opinions, homeopathy...).
Scientific papers, such as papers for specialist magazines or (summaries of) theses

Besides, I have experience with a variety of
Instruction manuals
Business correspondence
Political papers
Development projects

The above listing is not exhaustive. Even if the translation you need doesn't belong to one of the mentioned categories, please contact me for details.
