Derek Middleton

I am an independent editor and translator (Dutch to English) with an environmental background. I have worked in urban and rural planning and in international academic publishing.

Since 1995 I have been providing translating and editing services to government agencies, research institutes, consulting firms, industry organisations and non-governmental organisations, including texts on topics of national and international importance.

What I value most in my clients is their trust, and I do everything to ensure I am worthy of it.

I support research, design, policy and development professionals who want clear, accurate and persuasive texts, mainly in the following fields:

  • spatial policy, planning and development, transport, urban and landscape design
  • environmental science, ecology and nature conservation
  • circular economy, waste/materials management
  • sustainability and international development
  • agriculture and biotechnology

My aim is always to produce highly readable texts that are accurate and authoritative.
