A former Afrikaans teacher and subject head, I have been a freelance language practitioner for many years. I obtained the Postgraduate Diploma in Editing and Translation at Stellenbosch University and also did several short courses (academic editing, self-revision and other-revision) offered by this university. My other qualifications include a BA (Afrikaans and Dutch III; Psychology III; Xhosa II), a BA Honours in Psychology, and an M.Diac. in Play therapy (cum laude).
I delight in well-chosen words, logical flow, clear structure and a message effectively conveyed. This enables me to identify and address the shortcomings of a text.
My client-base includes publishers, authors, students, academics, business people, bloggers, language agencies, advertisers and schools.
