Liesbeth Machielsen

Founder

Translator and writer to the core. She just loves the flexibility and versatility the profession offers. Building on two and a half decades of experience and yes, she's the governor around here. She lives for legal and commercial jobs and cherishes the challenge of a poorly written text.

Jouke de Jong

Jouke de Jong

Chief Content Officer

Our marketing and online man. An SEO expert: he will steer your website to the top of the tree in no time! Sharp, fast and, duck, ... lethal! Always already that extra mile ahead for his clients. Dreams of opening up a Machielsen branch in the Seychelles... and working from the beach!

Feije de Jong

Feije de Jong

CFO

Our CFO maintains a firm hand on the tiller when keeping our less patient staff members in line. An incisive man of precision and processes, and we’re oh so glad he chooses to be part of our team.

Language genius from the Ruhr region. She’s been working with Machielsen for a mere twenty years… Immediately agitated when faced with a badly written text, but let her work her alchemy and she’ll hand you back pure poetry every time.
