About this website[edit | edit source]
Hi, I’m Michael Beijer. I’m a Dutch-English technical/patent translator & terminologist (with almost 30 years of experience). This site is my hobby project and revolves around one of my great passions: terminology. I am an avid collector of anything related to dictionaries, glossaries, termbases, etc. – in particular Dutch<>English bilingual resources.
Correct and consistent terminology is particularly important in technical translation. I therefore maintain an extensive collection of specialist terminology – glossaries, termbases, word lists, dictionaries, websites, etc. You can view a printout of the folder structure I use to keep track of all this data on my computer here.
In my spare time, I also like to help colleagues with tricky terms in Proz.com’s so-called ‘KudoZ translation help network’, where I am often among the top ‘KudoZ point leaders’ in my language pair. Indeed, if you’re struggling with a particular term, I may already have researched and documented it at some point, so feel free to drop me a line!
