Technical translation into Dutch

In order to interpret technical texts accurately, a translator needs a great deal of technical aptitude. I can usually get a good grasp of the operation of a device or technology and am able to visualize it. This allows me to create a free-flowing translation of a user guide or maintenance manual of products and services.
