    Netherlands - Portfolio: 1

    If you want your text translated cheaply, quickly and above all, correctly, I'm the man for the job. I've been raised bilingually, speaking both Dutch and English. Having graduated from UC Roosevelt as a Biology-major, with minors in English and Journalism, I now work full-time as a translator and copywriter.

During my work, I've translated academic, legal and popular texts, including employment contracts, general Terms & Conditions, but also marketing texts, a personal specialty.
