0 Hi everybody! Hallo allemaal! My name is Marieke, and I am the senior translator for the EN>NL language pair. Feel free to ask me anything! Facebook Twitter LinkedIn
Do you combine your role with Gengo with another job?
Do you live in the Netherlands?
Hi there! Thank you for your interest! To answer your questions, I don't live in The Netherlands anymore. After studying journalism in Tilburg, I moved to Canada and completed my post-secondary education here. My entire family is in The Netherlands, though, so I visit them fairly regularly. I combine my work as an EN>NL Senior Translator with several other jobs. I do freelance work as a translator (both from Dutch to English and from English to Dutch), and I also work part-time as an instructor at Carleton University. I recently finished my PhD in English, so I hope to get more teaching work. Doing translations and teaching courses is the ideal combination for me: I get to work from home but also go out into the world to teach others!
