Fiona has been translating texts from English to Dutch since 2002. During her education, she lived in Manchester, UK, for 6 months and worked for a local translation agency where she wasn't only involved in translating, but also in voice-overs and educational training of new UK residents with another native tongue than English.
After she finished university, she started working in a commercial company specializing in very specific test instruments for which she translated the manuals to Dutch. She was responsible for international sales and 90% of the time she was either talking on the phone to representatives worldwide in English or writing them and the UK and USA suppliers and customers.
In 2013, she remained at the commercial business she was already working at and also began her own translation agency in Arnhem, the Netherlands. She has translated part-time ever since. As of the beginning of 2020, she quite her part-time position in order to concentrate on translating completely.
