There is an old saying that an image is worth 1000 words. But that isn’t entirely true; you need words in order to tell the story behind it.

Stijn van Oosterbos is the man behind Taalmaat text & translation. I translate, edit, proofread and write. I specialise in translating a wide variety of texts from English to Dutch and in providing subtitles for programmes by broadcasters such as National Geographic, SyFy and the History Channel. Working with Taalmaat means short lines of communication and pleasant personal contact. Please feel free to contact me for information or no-obligation estimates.
