Bio
I am a freelance translator who is interested in being added to your list of Dutch to English translators. My mother tongue is English and my command of Dutch, both written and spoken, is excellent.

In addition to my thorough knowledge of Dutch, I have two bachelor’s degrees in the natural sciences; one in Biochemistry with a minor in Mathematics and the other in Human Anatomy and Physiology. This broad technical base makes me a solid candidate for translating not only in the fields of chemistry and biology, but also in medicine, pharmacology, nutrition, and ecology, among others.

In fact, my lifelong love of literature and languages and my 16-year residency in Flanders make me an excellent candidate for translation from Dutch into English in all disciplines. An avid reader and hobbyist, I have had much exposure to art, literature, and the social sciences in the course of my studies and life experiences.

My broad technical background and excellent command of English and Dutch are only part of the reasons why I am a strong candidate for a position in your freelance translating team. My writing experience is long and varied, and is another important factor in the quality of the translation work that I deliver.

In addition to the technical writing that I did at Baxter Laboratories, which had to conform to the standards of the U. S. Food and Drug Administration, I am currently writing articles for publication in consumer magazines. With the help of my teacher at the Long Ridge Writer’s Group, I am polishing my skills as a writer of Creative Non-Fiction. As a result of these experiences, I understand how word choice and structure work together to bring cohesiveness to the style and voice of any piece of writing.

I have included my resume as an attachment to this letter. I hope that this will convince you of the quality of my work and my broad base of experience. I look forward to hearing from you about the possibilities of being a member of your freelance team.


Sincerely,

Marina Cosgrove
