About Us

Dr Imke de Gier

Academic Language Services was set up by Imke de Gier in 2012 to provide high-quality and professional translation and editing services to academics in the humanities who need to publish in English. Imke holds a BA in History and an MA in Medieval Studies from the University of Bristol. She did her PhD on the medieval mystic Marguerite Porete at the Ruusbroec Institute at the University of Antwerp and has published in the field of medieval mysticism. As editorial assistant, she helped establish the Journal of Dutch Literature for Amsterdam University Press. Imke has copy edited numerous academic texts in the fields of history, literature, philosophy, sociology and theology. Academic Language Service’s editors and translators are truly bilingual (or trilingual) and have an in-depth understanding of academic writing, editing, and publishing.
Academic Language Services is a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.



“Academic Language Services really does deliver a ‘service’: personal contact, quick responses and the professional level of the translation and correction work. I would very much like to use you again and will be recommending you wholeheartedly to others.” Elisabeth de Bruijn University of Antwerp
