My work has included the management (i.e. writing, editing, translating and proofreading) of promotional/corporate and statutory content in several languages in intenational organisations (a.o. websites, multimedia products, leaflets, taglines, posters, packaging).
I also have experience in the writing, editing and translating of literary texts (books), technical manuals and training programs as well as legal documents.

What Clients Say
"The translation of survey questionnaires can be tricky since uniformity in the questionning over all languages involved has to be guaranteed. On top of that, questionnaires often contain technical or region-specific language. This is why we have been working with Gisela on several projects now. " Day One - Consumer Science
"De Franse versie van onze website hebben wij toevertrouwd aan Gisela Van Bulck. Wij zijn zeer tevreden over de geleverde prestaties en het eindresultaat. Gisela had niet enkel aandacht voor de opdracht op zich maar adviseerde ook omtrent de schrijftaal die bij onze toch wel specifieke huisstijl / sector past." iLABO.BE, Tommy De Kimpe
