Welcome

   The deer…
    stands stock-still
    looks intently
    listens keenly
    ruminates slowly
    moves stealthily
    leaps
…transposing words needs all these things.  (SVW)

Welcome to my website. My name is Susan Verkerk-Wheatley and I work as a freelance translator (Dutch into English).

As a translator:

I care about words and communication;
aspire to be a good steward of words;
step into another person’s way of seeing the world;
attend carefully to what s\he has written;
try to carry their words into the new context.

This site gives some information about my areas of interest as a translator, and my approach to translation and proofreading.
