Lisette has always known that she wanted something to do related with languages, but graphic design appealed to her too. She decided to enrol at the Maastricht School of Translation and Interpreting, where she learned the tricks of the trade and completed a minor in business writing. As part of her studies, she spent six months in Germany. According to Lisette, the best thing about translation is that you keep learning lots of things about a wide range of subjects. She enjoys searching for the correct translation of a specific term. Or finding the best solution to a technical problem. In her spare time, Lisette plays the xylophone in a melody percussion ensemble.
