I am a full-time freelance translator and proofreader.
I am registered with the South African Translators’ Institute (SATI membership no: 1002549). I have many years’ experience in the field of
teaching English Home Language (1977 - 2005), as well as translating and proofreading a large variety of
texts. Examples of my work are available on request.
I grew up in a fully bilingual home (father - English; mother - Afrikaans). The majors for my B.A. degree were English and Afrikaans & Dutch. I completed a B. Ed. in Human Resources Management and an M. Ed. in Negotiation. I was the CEO for Oudtshoorn Tourism (2005 - 2010) where I was also responsible for the language usage on and translation of all marketing collateral.
I offer translation and proofreading services
in the following language combinations:
Translation: Afrikaans to
English; English to Afrikaans;
Proofreading: English texts and Afrikaans
I can also competently translate Flemish / Dutch texts into
Afrikaans or English.
