Before entering the translation profession, I worked in healthcare for over 20 years as a registered nurse. My specialisms included oncology, clinical research, gynaecology and emergency services nursing. My registration in the Dutch ‘BIG’ register for health care professionals is still valid.
I was actively involved on the executive committee of the employee participation body of my former healthcare employer. My substantial experience in the healthcare sector and my specialist knowledge of the terminology involved means that I am frequently asked to deploy these specialist translation skills on medical and pharmaceutical texts.
From patient files to the documentation required for clinical research; from medication leaflets to research reports and educational materials for healthcare professionals. As an experienced healthcare and language professional I always look for the perfect translation in the target language.
