Professional Career Experience

During the past five years I handled the editing and translations of different kind of texts. Translations were done from English to Afrikaans but also many translations done from Afrikaans to English. I translated and proof read Psychology question papers on university-level for North West University, South Africa.
I taught Science and English at Sahmyook Primary School, South-Korea, from August 2009 to March 2010.
I translated Social Science curriculum documents and question papers for secondary school senior phase, for the Gauteng Education Department. I edited the health section in a monthly, local Afrikaans magazine, Finesse. I wrote, edit and translated for a few magazines like Finesse, DEKAT and Taalgenoot. I did translations for the travel webpage Travelground/Lekkeslaap and also edited a book. During this time I have had the privilege of working with many other experienced, committed and well trained professional language partisans.

I traveled a few countries and taught English and Natural Science in South Korea.

I edited and formatted curriculum based teaching material for teachers in rural Free State for the University of the Free State. I do freelance translation and editing work for NWU (North West University).
