PRESENTATION AND RESUME
Dear Sir, Madam,
I am trilingual DUTCH-FRENCH-ENGLISH. Born and raised in the Netherlands I have lived in France since 1998 and worked in tourism and education. For 3 years I taught English in several French schools and institutes. I am now in the process of finishing a Master 1 degree in English, where I succesfully completed (among others) translation classes French-English. As a freelance english teacher/instructor, I wish to enlarge my scope to translation and therefore offer my skills for translation/proofreading jobs in the field of tourism/travel, international politics issues, but also texts with a more general content.
I would describe my style of work as meticulous, thorough and reliable. In addition, I have great availability and flexibility. Don't hesitate to contact me with your requests, no matter how urgent or short!
