“Translation is not a matter of words only: it is a matter of making intelligible a whole culture.”

Anthony Burgess

About me


My name is Danielle Boelema. I have a Bachelor’s degree in American Studies, which I studied at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. The American Studies programme offered courses that allowed me to gain a profound knowledge of the English language, American political and societal systems, and American art, culture, and media. The programme was taught almost entirely in English, and required me to write many (academic) pieces and give many oral presentations in English.


While I was a student, I worked as a translator at a publishing house. For this company, I drew up (Englis) press releases and letters and translated (parts of) books and poems. I loved doing this work so much that I decided to establish my own translation company.


Since the establishment of StarLines in 2012, I have translated texts about many different subjects for, among others, Dutch construction company BAM, the Martini Hospital in Groningen and the government of the Dutch province of Drenthe. I also translated one of the novels of best-selling American author Scott Nicholson into Dutch.
