About Us

Tupelo Translations is a young and enthusiastic translation agency that specialises in the translation of legal and official documents. From our office in Rotterdam, we provide services for law firms, notaries, judicial authorities, port companies, international organisations and many more. 

CEO

Standing at the helm, is Bianca Wijnstekers-Handy, a born and bred Rotterdammer. True to the famous Rotterdam credo, she takes on everything with a no-nonsense mentality. What you see, is what you get. Short lines of clear, straight-forward communication.

 

Education

Bianca Wijnstekers-Handy studied at Utrecht University. In 2006, she achieved a bachelor degree in English Language & Culture and in 2009 went on to do the master degree Translation English & Dutch. In 2014, she began specialising in legal translation. In that same year, she was sworn in by the Rotterdam District Court and added to the Register of Sworn Court Interpreters and Translators (Bureau Wbtv).

 

Training 

Every five years a certified translator has to extend his/her registration. In 2019 her registration was renewed by the Legal Aid Board upon her successful completion of the course Legal Translation EN-NE/NE-EN (286 Permanent Education Points). Instructor Chris Odijk, sworn English translator, writes:

“Ms Wijnstekers was a meticulous and enthusiastic student, who continued to show strong commitment to legal translation. Her insight into legal terminology was exceptional.”

Personal approach

Bianca is proud of her personal approach. Not only where client contact is concerned, but also especially when it comes to the freelance translators she assigns to projects. She has met with them personally or they have been recommended by fellow translation agencies. In this way, Bianca continues to build a personal relationship with each freelance translator, knowing what skills he or she has to offer in order to find the perfect match between text and translator for every assignment, because:

We don’t only translate for you, we go the extra mile.

This is what clients say about us:

"Marooned in a foreign country after the airline refused to fly me home because I lost my passport, I was helped by Tupelo Translations that provided an excellent and accurate translation of my Dutch residence permit as part of my struggle to get a replacement. In addition, Bianca's words of encouragement helped keep my spirits up and her extra online assistance helped me try to circumvent recalcitrant foreign postal systems. Now I anchor in hope."

Ms Henshaw  Certified Translation

"For my employer in Taiwan, Bianca carried out a certified translation very professionally, very fast and properly. She explained to me what steps I had to take in order to obtain the legalisation stamps needed on the certified translation, which she then obtained for me. I would recommend her service to who needs a certified translation."
