Maaike Verrips on De Taalstudio: “When I started the company, people who had my interests at heart warned me that there would be no market for a company like this. ‘Who on earth is looking for knowledge about linguistics?’ But I never doubted for a second that there was a need for it. I certainly am proud that we are now doing a good job of locating and satisfying that demand. We are celebrating our fifth anniversary this year, and I have not had a moment of regrets.”
