Maartje van Sandwijk

Founder of Mockingbird Translations

I grew up in a small town in the Netherlands. After university, where I studied English translations, graduated with a bachelor's degree in communications, I escaped to England.


I have 4 years of full-time professional experience translating different texts and documents from English to Dutch and Dutch to English.

I also speak - but don't translate - German (rusty, but once fluently), French (abominable), and Dothraki. I take part in different language exchange events so I can pretend to be multilingual, and work on improving my language skills.

Based in England, learning more and more about the culture and language every day.
