Naturally, the skills mentioned outside of the translation range apply to other languages as well. I can just as easily, say, proofread and edit in French.

Then of course there are the fields of expertise. Although I am able and willing to research any subject, significant knowledge in the following fields is present on a professional level;
- Psychology (BA x 2 - Once in Holland, once in the UK. 4 years of field experience.)
- Financial services ( 7 years of field experience.)
- Translation services (10 years of field experience.)
- Writing (fictional) content (4 years of field experience.)

And on an amateur level;
- Equine care (25+ years of experience.)
- Feline care ( 11 years of experience.)
- Travel (15 years of experience.)
- Acting (18 years of experience.)
- Gaming (15 years of experience.)
- Fictional writing (21 years of experience.)

Being versatile and flexible, also with my turn-around time, my services cannot be beaten.
What matters is YOUR project.

Key words which apply to me: client-oriented, communicative (I will keep you informed of my progress as often as you require),...
