Evan Dorrestein, MA, is a respeaker/speech-to-text interpreter from Hilversum, the Netherlands. After completing his master's degree in English at Utrecht University, he started his career as a (live) subtitler at Dutch public broadcaster NPO, captioning for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in 2001. After the introduction of respeaking software, he was one of the first to adopt this new way of subtitling for live TV in the Netherlands. In 2006 he became a freelancer, combining respeaking for live TV and subtitling English language TV shows into Dutch. In recent years, Evan has started to respeak interlingually too, simultaneously interpreting from Dutch to English and vice versa. He has been working closely together with Denise Kroesen, MA, since 2019, subtitling live events for the corporate sector and educational, cultural, and government institutions with their company Substream.
