Experience November 2016:

Textabulous is the new name for Get Real Editing. I still love editing, whether legal or academic, but I also do a lot more besides: legal and other translations from French and Dutch; low-fat writing for marketing and for internal and external communications; and technical writing and editing.

Recent roles include Editor and Publisher on the content-transition team for the new intranet at Philips, and Editor and Write for the new Internet at Europol, the European Police Office.

I am now translating from Dutch a book by Nico Tollenaar, a partner at the law firm Resor, “Het pre-insolventieakkoord: een rechtvaardingsgrondslag en raamwerk”.
