Maarten's career in the localisation industry started in 2014 when he started working as a freelance Dutch language specialist. At the same time, he started gaining experience on the corporate side of the business at RWS Moravia. Throughout the years he grew into a middle management position in his area, Vendor Management. As such, he was part of multilingual programme teams for big international clients. Currently, he works as an independent localisation consultant, supporting localisation agencies with their vendor management and account management strategies and practices. In May 2020, Maarten joined KennisTranslations in order to be able to offer companies the possibility to develop multilingual localisation programmes together with an experienced group of passionate professionals.
