Hello, Linda Verboogen here. Back in 2006, I started studying at the Maastricht School of Translation and Interpreting in The Netherlands. There, I learned the theory behind translations. During those four years of study I was also well acquainted with translation practice. For my language internship I lived and worked in Cologne for five months. In 2010, I achieved my bachelor’s degree as a professional translator.
Immediately after my studies, I went to work as a German-Dutch translator at a translation agency. After two-and-a-half years there, I made the move to freelance translator. On April 1, 2013, VerboTrans, my translation service, became a reality – and that’s no joke.
