About MGVS

I graduated in Spanish Language and Culture from the University of Amsterdam in 2005 and was sworn before the District Court of Haarlem in March 2006.

During my study I specialized in the Literature of the Hispanic world. In addition I followed a minor 'Latin American and Caribbean society'. For this purpose I took several courses at CEDLA in Amsterdam and KITLV in Leiden. My Master's thesis is a research on the developments in the past and present of Colombia and the implications for its future.

Because I assisted with the set up and still am very much involved in Foundation Los Hijos, a Dutch roots organization that helps searching for the biological family of adopted Colombians living in the Netherlands, I have ample experience with adoption and roots matters. Annually, Foundation Los Hijos organizes a roots journey to Colombia in order to guide adoptive families with their roots search. During these trips I act as interpreter for the participants.

After having prepared translations for clients of Foundation Los Hijos for several years, I decided to professionalize my services and start my own translation agency. During the foundation of MGVS the interest in its services resulted great. And see!

Saludos cordiales,

Drs.(Master of Arts) Myrthe M.A. Groesbeek
