My name is Astrid Werumeus Buning, and I started Pontifix Language Services in 2005. I majored in translation at the University of Groningen, graduating in 1994. After that, I spent ten years working for several translation and editing agencies. During that time, I not only gained a lot of experience in translation, but also found out what my strengths and weaknesses were. I realized that technical transitions in software localization are not my forte, but that I loved taking on texts that required a creative overhaul.
In 2005, I decided to take the leap and started out as an independent professional.
