Pierke Bosschieter; ISB&Index


Coming from a background in library science, I have been working as a freelance indexer since 2005. My specialisations are the Middle East and the three Abrahamic religions, but my portfolio includes significantly more: archaeology, biographies, art, literature, exhibition catalogues and women’s studies. Besides normal indexes created from a PDF file, I also create indexes embedded in Word or InDesign.

My indexes are detailed but concise and reflect the style and wording of the document. I see compiling an index as solving a big crossword puzzle. Each book is a new challenge and requires a specific approach.

Oh, forgot to mention that I am based in the Netherlands. You can find my website here.
