About Exter

Exter Indexing is based in Haarlem, the Netherlands. I live here with my husband, two sons, 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.

Topics

I can provide back-of-the-book and embedded indexes in English and Dutch. I am familiar with indexing with codes in Word, as required by certain academic presses, such as Cambridge University Press. Furthermore, I can make both subject indexes and name indexes. My specialties include:

Rates

Rates may vary depending on the length of the text and the type of index that you require. To give you a general idea, I charge €10 per thousand words for traditional book indexes. My rates are lower for name indexes and higher for embedded indexes. To receive a quote, you can contact me via the contact page or info@exterindexing.com.
