Giving every project my best. To translate you need to have deep knowledge of both languages; Many things you cannot translate literally, as they will have a different meaning or make no sense. E.g. translating the Dutch sentence: ‘De kraan loopt’ would literally translate: ‘The tap walks’ instead of ‘The tap runs’. I love empowering people to become the best they can and want to be.
