I'm a native Dutch speaker, academically trained (MA in English Language & Culture, Leiden University). Having worked in international environments for all my working life and translating professionally from English into Dutch (and vice versa), translating has become second nature to me. I work extensively with several TM tools like SDL Trados 2014, Wordfast, Crowdin and Smartling. My areas of expertise include: mobile apps, hardware, software, communication, engineering, internet, marketing, (social) travel and tourism. With 100% proficiency in both languages and cultures, I can localize your content to the Dutch market in the right tone. To me communication is key, I am well organised and an efficient time-manager.

I have 14 years of experience in software development and believe there is a direct connection between design and the ease of use and efficacy of software. If the fundamental design is good then enhancements are very often natural extensions of it. I view testing as integral to development since the programmer will always have singular insight in understanding how to test his or her own software. I like to exceed expectations and I know from experience that doing so requires the ability to anticipate as well as solve problems.
I'm a copywriter and editor with a knack for crafting compelling brand stories. I specialize in web copy, often focusing on re-branding existing content or improving UX. In addition, I have experience editing dissertations for Ph.D. candidates and clients who speak English as a second language. If we're talking business, I'm at my best when I'm writing to-the-point pieces for industries with customers who appreciate wit and distrust used car salesmen. Making sure your voice and message is communicated authentically is my goal.

Right after finishing my 4 years B.Sc. degree in Computer Science, obtained at the Sapientia University, Targu Mures I started to work in the IT. After some years of work as a developer / software engineer I had the chance to change my role and try out something more dynamic and chaotic which means I started to work as a system administrator. This role allowed me to show what a single person can do with some basic knowledge and passion to clean up a complete development stack, make an order in servers and services so other people can concentrate only on development. After my first steps in administration, a new world was just opening for me which was the automatization of servers as much as possible. After 5 years experience as a system engineer I'm sure, we should automate as much as possible. It really helps to be far away from the chaos of wrongly configured servers and inconsistent service deployments, which in long term could cause really huge troubles. Specialties: • Automation evangelist • Proficient problem solving and technical skills • Practical design, development and architecture capabilities • Ability to learn new technologies fast
