My name is Eva Corijn

I’m a translator (Dutch/Swedish to English) and editor. Before I started fiddling around with commas and trying to beat Google Translate at its job, I worked as a communication professional in the NGO sector for several years. This taught me useful things like how to run a vaccination campaign in Malawi, but also how to really make a text work.

Today, I use that knowledge to provide my clients with flawless translations and texts (I leave the vaccination campaigns to others).

What I offer

I can help you out with a range of language services tailored to your needs – whether it’s translating a brochure, editing that new report that’s a bit messy or writing catchy copy for your new website.

Translation

I translate from Dutch / Swedish to English and ensure the result sounds as good as the original (if not better).

Editing

I edit your text from A to Z. I polish the language until it sparkles, clear up the structure and get your message across.

Proofreading

The “quick” version of editing: I give your text a once-over, fixing any grammar or spelling mistakes.

Copywriting

I can write you anything from short web blurbs to feature-length articles, all in creative, passionate English.

Clients

I specialise in working with clients who make the world a better place. From brave women’s rights NGOs to international actors tackling climate change. Because I believe their story is worth telling.

I also work with select companies and actors who understand language matters. They want their message to stand out, to make readers pause and say “Oh wow. Tell me more!”

Experience

Languages

I grew up in a bilingual Dutch/English environment and started learning Swedish eleven years ago. (Last time a Swede guessed where I was from, “Norrland, perhaps?” was their pick.) I speak English with my closest friends, Dutch with my siblings and Swedish with my partner.
