About this website

Hi, I’m Michael Beijer. I’m a Dutch-English technical/patent translator & terminologist (with almost 30 years of experience). This site is my hobby project and revolves around one of my great passions: terminology. I am an avid collector of anything relating to dictionaries, glossaries, termbases, etc. – in particular Dutch-English resources. This site is where I archive and manage all of this data, in an easily searchable form.

If you’re researching a pesky term, you have several options:

  • consult the many Terms I have researched
  • browse my complete collection using the various Categories I use to organise all this data
  • try the search box above!
