Maarten de Bruijn (in memoriam)

On October 15, 2003, Maarten de Bruijn was suddenly and unexpectedly taken from his family by a heart attack at age 54. Maarten was a Dutch and English technical translator specializing in medical, pharmaceutical, financial and legal translations. Maarten is survived by his wife Carol Jurriaans and his two children, Habiba and Mingus.

The community of translators and interpreters who frequent the Lantra-L mailing list express their sympathy and sorrow at his loss.
