Simone started her career at the University of Amsterdam by gaining a master's degree in Dutch Language and Literature. After having worked for some years as a teacher of Dutch in a secondary school, she was bitten by the travel bug and found a way to travel the world by working for an airline. She did this until her love of languages sent her back to school. She studied for 3 years to qualify as a translator. Her speciality is, of course, travel & tourism, but she also translates legal documents, such as terms & conditions.
