Glenda Janssen is an interpreter, translator, editor, proofreader, and writer. She currently works and blogs at Select Italy.

She lives in Chicago since 2002 (with a brief interruption in 2008, when she lived in Wilmington, NC). Before that, she lived in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, and Rome, Italy (also with some shorter periods in Amantea (CS), Italy, and Kampen, The Netherlands). She prefers moving and immigrating to traveling, but loves both.

She has a knack for learning languages, and is natively fluent in English, Dutch, and Italian. She has been known to speak Spanish with her neighbors, and French with some friends. She understands written German and should probably study it more, but languages are already such a big part of her life that she sometimes needs a break and do something different.

Glenda has studied Massage Therapy, and specializes in medical interpretation and translation.
