I am a professional indexer that provides back-of-the-book and embedded indexes in English and Dutch. My indexes are thorough and will be delivered within your time frame. I offer a competitive price and I am willing to take on last-minute projects.

Exter Indexing is based in Warffum, one of the northernmost towns in the Netherlands. I live here with my husband, son, and two cats. The name Exter is derived from the word “ekster,” which means magpie in Dutch. My love of birds is the inspiration for this name and concept.

I am particularly fond of reading and indexing biographies. Together with the Biography Institute, I organized “Different Lives: Global Perspectives on Biographies in Public Cultures and Societies,” one of the biggest international conferences on Biography Studies, in 2018.

I am able to take on projects from many different subjects. Even though most of my training is in the humanities, I am able to index entry-level books from any area.
