I graduated from the Maastricht School of Translation and Interpreting, where I specialized in legal translations. During my studies, I gained work experiences by means of internships at subtitling agency Deluxe Digital Studios in London (UK), translation agency Vertaalbureau Zuyd in Maastricht (the Netherlands) and translation agency Global textware in Groningen (the Netherlands).

Shortly after starting Van der Maat Translations, I was sworn in by the court of Assen, the Netherlands, after which I have been allowed to carry out sworn/certified translations English-Dutch and Dutch-English.
