Native-English expertise 

for Dutch writers

My name is Ragini Werner and I am the native-English editor and translator who runs NEEDSer. My expertise is based on a deep understanding of the English needs of Dutch writers.

As a translator, I am a generalist in the wide range of material I work on, aiming always to produce a fluent English text that stays true to your own style and original Dutch meaning.

As an editor, I am a sensitive specialist in removing any lingering traces of your Dutch accent from your text while ensuring that your English is correct and, most important, readable.
