    Hello! As a Belgian citizen, I am a NATIVE DUTCH SPEAKER. I am a 27 year old student with a Bachelor's Degree in JOURNALISM and a Master's Degree in CULTURAL STUDIES Currently I'm working for the Brussels correspondence office of the JAPANESE NEWSPAPER 'MAINICHI SHIMBUN'. It is the third largest newspaper in Japan with more than 4 million readers. I follow up press conferences, write reports and translate documents from English to Dutch and vice versa. During my studies as a journalist, I did multiple internships. I worked for the national media station of the Basque Country (Spain) EiTB, where I wrote articles in English and French. Besides that I did an internship at a Belgian film magazine. My job was to write reviews and news articles, and to do proofreading and copywriting. Over the last year, I have done MULTIPLE TRANSLATION JOBS for Lingotek, Language Insight and Appen Butler Hill, as well as some smaller freelance projects (apps, websites, ...). I have written many articles, essays, papers, emails and more in English. I can honestly say I master the language quite well. I've taken the oDesk English to Dutch translation test and scored a 100%. Keywords to highlight my skills are SPEED, FLEXIBILITY and ACCURACY. I'm available 24/7, and maintain GOOD COMMUNICATION with my employers. Thank you for your attention, I hope you take my application into consideration. Regards, Michael Peeters  less
