Talentranslation is the website of Sanne Vuik, freelance translator. My mother tongue is Dutch and I translate from English, French and Spanish. I have a broad experience with translations for companies (company documents and webpages), tourism, marketing, HR, fashion and cosmetics, art and culture and psychology. I also translate texts in other subject field. The program I work with is Trados 2014.
