My name is Marianne Meyer-Buijser. I live and work in the Rotterdam area. I am married and have two adult children. In addition to Taal Aid I very much enjoy my part-time job as a telephonist at SecretariA answering service.
My family background is rather international. Language and foreign languages have always been at the centre of my school education and quite varied career starting as a multilingual camping receptionist and moving on to English proofreader/editor/translator, tour guide, English/Dutch management assistant, Dutch speech-to-text reporter for the deaf and hard of hearing, and finally answering service agent. Not forgetting a generous portion of life experience.
I find it important to make sure formal texts are professional, not only in looks but also in terms of content, including correct grammar, syntax and spelling. This is why I would always recommend professional proofreading and editing by someone who can take a step back from the authorship of a text, to view it with a fresh eye.
