CEO and Dutch translator
After translating as a freelancer for a couple of years, I was presented with the opportunity to build up a translation department within a language school in La Paz, Bolivia. After a couple of years this successfully turned into an independent translation agency, and this is where we are now. id est translations now provides translation services to businesses all over the world in many languages.
Sales & Marketing Manager
Apart from ocasional translation projects, I facilitate the promotion, marketing and sales for id est translations. I have a background in IT and Forestry Management, which seems unrelated to this function, though the IT and design knowledge help a lot in the promotion of id est translations through digital mediums.

I am a Danish translator working at id est translations while finishing my Master's Degree in Danish and Spanish Translation and Interpretation. I developed a passion for languages throughout my Bachelor in Spanish and Latin American Studies, and the logical next step was therefore a specialization in Translation and Interpretation, allowing me to work with the different aspect of languages at all times. I am particularly passionate about the Spanish language, for which reason living in Cochabamba makes perfect sense and is a great experience.
