Wendy Byrne

Copywriter, Editor, Proofreader, Translator

Location icon Netherlands

A self-confessed word nerd, I have been obsessed with language for a long time... As a French major at Smith College in the States, I took a life-changing year of study abroad in Paris, my first experience living in a foreign language. (Well, second if you count my father's thick and sometimes incomprehensible Irish accent...)

I was born and raised in the U.S., but have lived in Amsterdam most of my adult life. Trilingual English-French-Dutch, I am a flexible copywriter, proofreader and editor in both American & British English, and a reliable translator of French or Dutch into English. Nice to meet you. Bienvenue sur mon portfolio. Gezellig.
