About me

I am Shana Schelkens, a freelance translator living in Vilvoorde, Belgium. In 2018, I completed my Master in Translation English-German at the University of Antwerp with great distinction.

After spending a few years developing my language skills in international customer service and administrative jobs, I decided to strengthen my translation skills by taking the postgraduate course in Specialised Translation at KU Leuven, where I graduated Summa cum laude with
congratulations of the Board of Examiners in 2022.

I did a six-month full-time internship at one of the biggest localisation companies in the world, where I had the opportunity to learn the art of subtitling from experienced subtitlers and subtitled content for big media companies.

And here I am now, ready to help you translate or subtitle your content.

What are my personal hobbies? Making travel plans, submerging myself into geek culture and unleashing my creativity.
