Welcome to Language Solutions!

Hello! My name is Nathalie Heynderickx and I currently live in Stellenbosch, South Africa where I have spent the past 28 years of my life after immigrating from Belgium in 1982. Following my  academic career as a lecturer in two different French Departments - 4 years at Rhodes University and 8 years at Stellenbosch University respectively - I founded Language Solutions in January 2006.  Languages have been my lifelong passion - a passion that I also bring to my work in Language Solutions.

My main working languages are English, French and Dutch (Flemish). The focus of my work is on translation (French > English) and simultaneous conference interpreting (French <> English) for which I am accredited with the South African Translator’s Institute (SATI). I have also tour and language guided, chaperoned and interpreted consecutively. My versatility, adaptability, dependability and willingness to find “language solutions” have stood clients in good stead. Satisfied clients have stayed and word-of-mouth communication has attracted new clients.

I have kept my finger on the “French” pulse by being actively involved in the Alliance française de Stellenbosch, a French cultural and  language organisation of which I have been the President since 2006.  It not only offers French language classes at beginner’s, intermediate and advanced levels but also presents a varied annual programme of events, films and “soirées” organised by our dynamic committee. It is in the context of this organisation that I also offer private French classes to interested individuals.

The central ethos of Language Solutions is to provide you with a personalised and prompt service. By facilitating communication and jointly bridging linguistic gaps, I become your partner in finding a language solution.
