Client: Poëziecentrum Gent
Project: Dichter des vaderlands – Poète National – Nationaler Dichter is a literary exchange initiative (started in 2014) that aims to build a bridge between the three official language communities in Belgium: Dutch–French–German. Every two years, a poet from a different language community is appointed to write at least six poems a year on various themes around current events in Belgium.
Susan is an excellent translator and a pleasure to communicate with. The website and newsletter translations related to literary and cultural contents and events that Susan made for Poëziecentrum always succeeded in striking the right note. We can recommend her as a reliable translator with thorough professional competence in her specialist fields.

I am thrilled to share my experience of working with Susan for the translation of our website from Dutch to German. The journey of transforming our content while maintaining its essence in a different language was made incredibly smooth, all thanks to the remarkable collaboration we had. Deadlines were met while maintaining the quality of the translation. The end result met our expectations, the German version reads fluently and naturally, as if it was originally crafted in that language. This accomplishment wouldn't have been possible without the outstanding collaboration. Working with Susan has been an absolute pleasure. The professionalism, attention to detail, and commitment to maintaining the essence of our content has left a lasting impression. If you're looking for a seamless and effective translation process, I wholeheartedly recommend Susan. Here's to future collaborations and continued success!
