HOW CAN I HELP?
I offer the following linguistic services.
We all know that translating is more than simply replacing words. A high-quality translation requires fluency in the source and target languages plus familiarity with the cultural background of both languages, and with the subject matter.
As a native of the Netherlands and longtime resident of the United States, I can offer just that. Whether it’s a one-page news release or a one-hundred-page technical manual, I will give your translation my full dedication to quality and professionalism.
Editing & ProofreadingIt is easy to overlook the value of a good editor or proofreader, especially when working on a tight budget. Editing and proofreading are, however, essential steps in the translation process. Although every translator is expected to deliver an accurate translation, it often takes a second (or third) pair of eyes to help ensure a high-quality end product.
I have many years of experience editing and proofreading all types of texts for a variety of industries. Let me be your extra pair of eyes and help you polish your text until it is perfect.
App & Software LocalizationThe past decade, we have seen a huge increase in the development of software applications, in particular apps for mobile devices. By having your app or software localized for its intended audience, you maximize your app’s distribution potential and user ratings. It is highly recommended that you work with a professional translator to ensure a high-quality translation that enhances the value of your app.
Getting your app localized helps your product attract users and gain visibility—I can help you with the process.
