Dutch to English: 'Teveel geld naar ontwikkelingshulp' - Vertaling van de Telegraaf
Source text - Dutch
Bijna 60 procent van de Nederlanders vindt dat ons land te veel geld uitgeeft aan ontwikkelingshulp.

Dat blijkt uit onderzoek van onzeWereld, het maandblad over ontwikkeling en Derde Wereld.
Nederland geeft jaarlijks 0,7 procent van het bruto binnenlands product aan ontwikkelingshulp, nu ongeveer vier miljard euro.

Volgens het onderzoek ergert driekwart van de Nederlandse bevolking zich verder aan het wervingsbeleid van hulporganisaties. De Nederlanders zijn telefoontjes, aanklampen op straat en persoonlijke mailings meer dan zat, aldus de onderzoekers.
Translation - English
Almost sixty percent of Dutch people think that our country gives too much money towards development work.

That's according to research by onzeWereld, the monthly journal on development and the Third World.

The Netherlands gives 0.7 percent of its Gross National Product to development work, now approximately four billion euro.

According to the study three quarters of the Dutch population are annoyed by the recruitment policies of charity organisations. The Dutch are fed up with receiving phone calls, being grabbed on the street and getting personal mails, the researchers found.

Bio
I am an Irish native, and have lived here most of my life. I have a degree in English from University College Dublin (First Class Honours), along with a qualification in teaching English as a foreign language, so my English language skills are excellent.


I have a Dutch father and have previously lived in Holland, so I am fluent in Dutch and have been speaking the language my whole life.
