You can contact me for translations from Russian or English of:

Literary fiction and non-fiction

For literary translations from Russian and English I work in partnership with my long-term Dutch colleague and semi-namesake Els de Roon Hertoge. Because two literary translators can do more than one. We complement each other well, we keep each other from making translation and interpretation errors. In short, we raise the level of each other’s work. A win-win situation for your publishing house!

Journalism and essays

From substantive feature length articles to double interviews and short op-eds: I translate them for you in catchy Dutch. Fact-checking? That’s a free bonus.

Commercial texts

Texts for marketing purposes require specific skills. As well as being a commercial translator, I’m also a copywriter: I bridge cultural differences to wrap your message into a stirring Dutch text for your website, brochure or ad that is completely honed in on your target audience.

You can find examples of my translations here.
