About me

Helen White, freelance translator

 

I translate a wide range of texts from Dutch, French and German into English, which is my mother tongue.

 

I grew up in Britain and moved to Ghent, in the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium, in 2000.

 

Before starting Snapdragon Translations in 2014, I worked as an English language teacher and an organiser/administrator in the cultural sector as well as translating. Since 2001, I have also been an in-house translator for a tax company (IT solutions for VAT and consultancy).
