Hi there! My name is Floor van Dijck. I'm the smiling face (most days, at least) behind Floors Taal & Tekst. As a certified native Dutch translator with a passion for creative writing, I love to play with languages. Quite literally, actually: our sizable board game collection would not be complete without some language-oriented additions.
I have always had a tiny little translator inside of me, waiting to be let out. During my teen years I discovered the joys of translating song lyrics and Harry Potter books in my spare time. When the time had come to decide on my future career, the choice was not a very difficult one to make.
After getting my cum laude translation degree from Zuyd University of Applied Sciences in Maastricht, I started putting my acquired skills into practice. First at a translation agency, and after that as an internal translator and copywriter for a cosmetics company.
It didn't take long for me to discover I am not only a translator, but also a writer at heart. The more creative freedom, the better! The next chapter of my career, starting Floors Taal & Tekst and using my creativity and love for languages to help others tell their story, felt like the right step to make.
Sustainability is also at the top of my priority list as a professional. I especially enjoy working with companies trying to lower their carbon footprint, nearly everything in my home office was bought secondhand and I can walk to work, so zero commute! One of the many advantages of working from home. (Other benefits include the furry coworkers warming my lap every now and then, and having unlimited access to the pantry.)
Would you like to chat with me sometime, either virtually or face-to-face in the Eindhoven area? Feel free to drop me a message!
