I am a native English speaker who has lived and studied in the Netherlands for more than 5 years. In the course of working on my MA in Political Science from Leiden University, I displayed my proficiency in the Dutch language through my written work and countless oral presentations in the Dutch language.
Being married to a Dutch wife and having a strong community of friends in the Netherlands has given me native-equivalent proficiency in Dutch which, in combination with my long academic experience, has given me a thorough knowledge of both formal (legal) and colloquial vocabulary.
While I am relatively new to the ProZ.com community, I have previous experience with Dutch-English translation; most recently as a consultant for a DC based organization.
