A large English industrial firm had a super urgent job. October 2010. This last minute job took an entire weekend. Stacks of English to Dutch paperwork needed to be meticulously prepared for a EU office in Brussels. A multi-million Euro project saved by last minute work.

2010. The industrial firm had requested my assistance in doing office work in preparing the translation and administration of a large stack of official documents for a bid which had to be ready very early that coming Monday morning at 4 am.

I met their deadline: Thousands of printed pages of technical text. Ordered by Robert, the CEO.

"I can thoroughly recommend Kees as a fast and accurate translator at competitive rates. In addition he has a great ‘can do’ attitude and is comfortable with meeting tight deadlines. He saved the day for us when nobody else would commit to the short lead time.”


& many many more, in 2010 and 2011
