First aid for text
Do you need English text, editing work or a translation from Dutch into English? That’s what I do. I’m a copywriter, content creator and Dutch to English translator with an eye for detail and an eagerness for authenticity.
Content & Copywriting
Are you looking for effective and authentic online content, marketing material or internal communications? With plenty of experience in communications, I know what an effective piece of text can do.
Editing & Proofreading
Sometimes you need a fresh take on your work. I look at your article, thesis, story or online content with a critical eye so that you are confident that your text is perfect. I’m also a wizard at simplifying and getting to the core of the message.
First aid for text provides more than an automated translation of your text. I translate with an eye for detail and a sense of style. A good translation is easy to read but hard to identify as a translation.
I’m a British/Dutch national with an international perspective. I grew up as a third culture child in Hong Kong and Germany and later collected international professional experience in The Netherlands and Japan.
My work experience is in the cultural, diplomatic, oil & gas and educational sectors. In these companies and organisations, I enjoyed a professional and social network in The Hague which I still benefit from today.
I live in Scheveningen with my family, very close to the beach where I swim in the North sea daily. Another favourite way to spend my time is visiting the beautiful Kunstmuseum around the corner.
Contact me if you are looking for a native speaker with a flexible attitude and communications professional with attention to detail, curiosity and empathy.
