Hi! Thanks for taking the time to get to know me.
My name is Cornelis and I'm a native Dutch speaker, academically trained (MSc in Cultural Anthropology - Universiteit Utrecht) and certified (CELTA - Cambridge University). After living and working abroad in English speaking educational environments for more than a decade, translating English to Dutch (and Dutch to English) has become second nature to me.
I have been working as a translator since 2009, and started working as a full time freelance language expert in 2014. I take on translation projects, PMTE, and also work as a proofreader/editor. I work for various agencies in the Netherlands, Great Britain, Europe and the USA, working both EN-NL and NL-EN.
I am a strong communicator that is well organised and manages his time efficiently.
With 100% proficiency in both languages and culture, I can translate and adapt your content to your Dutch/English target group with the right tone, and in clear and correct language. Let me help you communicate effectively with your audience.
Areas of expertise: Business and sales writing; Management; Marketing; Public relations; Government and NGOs; Education; Academic writing; Web content and websites; Arts and culture; Software; UI strings; Product descriptions; User manuals (including technical and medical); Instructions; Personal development; Popular scientific; Travel and Tourism; Health; Hospitality
I hope to hear from you soon!
