Experience I've been editing for around 15 years, the last six of which I've been freelancing. I worked in-house for a research organisation (and then also contracted back to them as a freelancer) that studied all aspects of desert and remote Australia, so the topic areas mentioned above were particular to this research. I've also separately edited research reports about the Great Barrier Reef, about climate change, about agricultural development in Africa, about Dutch involvement in agricultural innovation and various other NGO projects in developing nations.

Experience GREEN and NATURAL are my keywords!
* NATURAL as in “I am commited to making natural translations”: idiomatic, sense-for-sense rather than word-for-word translations, into natural English or natural Dutch.
* GREEN as in “green expertise”: Owing to my previous career and education (MSc agriculture, PhD ecology) my areas of expertise are agriculture, ecology, nature conservation and environmental sciences.
* GREEN as in “green business practice”: My language service is a sustainable business.
