Translating and Editing
Dutch to English

Angus Mackenzie is passionate about the power of language – as a native English speaker
who is fluent in Dutch, with an educational background that has been largely about the
nature of language (English, Philosophy and Law) – he has always focused on the
precision, vitality and clarity of language.

Translate Dutch to
English –Straight Talking
with style

The process of translation, editing and proof-reading involves working with a living language that is used by living beings – words have multiple meanings, which rely on context, nuance, culture and human interaction, none of which are elements that can be effectively handled by an online translation service.

Angus has zero tolerance for ‘Dunglish’: Dutch poorly translated into English, which is unfortunately an all too common occurrence. For meticulous yet powerful communications that are delivered on time and perfectly formatted for your needs, Angus provides a bespoke translation service, working with you to guarantee the best results.

The value of top
level translation
and editing

Like any really good translator and editor, Angus is attuned to the changing nature of words within cultures. He is aware of the purpose of each translation and focused on developing every piece of work until it is an excellent communication that stands alone in each language and is effective, substantial and easy to understand. When working to translate and edit Dutch to English, Angus pays particular attention to the overall tone and nature of the translation, giving equal weight to careful translation and clear communication to provide translations that are straightforward, readable and informative.

In other words, Angus is meticulous about producing flawless English translation while staying true to the original Dutch source text: by using correct word choice and word play, as a native speaker, he is able to bring out the nuances from one language text to another, thereby keeping the translated text as close as possible to the source text.

Stepping out of one’s comfort zone can be difficult. But starting the journey with someone who has always stayed at the forefront of career coaching helped make up for lost ground very quickly. The mentoring I got from Angus made a difference: the sessions were fit for purpose, personal, interactive and full of ‘a-ha’ or ‘light bulb’ moments. Leaving the final session, I felt re-energized and confident to tackle the market.

I was looking for a native speaker teacher who could be able to help leverage my creative English writing skills. After going through Angus Mackenzie's profile on Linkedin, I was confident that he would correspond to my goals given his amazing expertise and curriculum vitae. He not just succeeded my expectations but went far beyond. He is very knowledgeable and wise and through our wonderful exchanges, I really felt an improvement towards my writing process. He not only has a very good teaching method but also, importantly, was the way in which he would let me be comfortable to choose the course of the classes.

We had lessons together for three months in Amsterdam. The only reason that made me stop having tutelage with Angus was because of his moving to Spain. Otherwise I would have certainly carried on! I can strongly recommend his work!
