Sofie Janssen is a fully-qualified professional freelance translator with 15 years of experience in the translation business. She provides translation services for local and international companies, as well as translation agencies and private parties.
Born and raised in Antwerp, Belgium, she moved to Florence, Italy shortly after obtaining her Master’s Degree in translation (magna cum laude) at VLEKHO in Brussels (Belgium) in 1997. She has worked as a translator ever since, first as an employee and subsequently as a freelancer.
Holder of the “Certificazione di Italiano come lingua straniera Livello 4 (CILS)” (Certificate of Italian as a Foreign Langauge, Level 4) from the University of Siena, Italy, for many years she worked for an international company in a fully bilingual English-Italian work environment.
She has maintained constant contact with her native culture, both on a professional and a personal level. Her 15-year-long working experience and deep understanding of both cultures put her in an excellent position to provide high-quality translations. This is especially true from Italian into Dutch and Flemish, which are complex language combinations that lack good (technical) dictionaries and other translation tools.
She is a sworn translator entitled to submit sworn and legalized translations from Italian into Dutch and Flemish and vice versa at the court of Florence, Italy. She is also registered as a Technical Consultant (CTU) at the court of Florence, and as an Expert Translator at the Florence Chamber of Commerce.
