    I am a native Dutch speaker currently living in the north of Spain. I have experience in transcribing and translating from English, Spanish and Italian to Dutch. I also have broad experience in research and administrative support. Before I moved to Spain I worked several years in the legal field; as a paralegal in Italy (2 years) and as a lawyer in The Netherlands (4 years). In Spain I took a fashion design course and I worked in the fashion industry as an international buyer and as the head of the buying department (6 years in total). Since embarking on my freelance career, I have worked on many different projects, covering a wide variety of styles and topics, translating from English/Italian/Spanish to Dutch and vice versa, pre-editing a book on marketing (English) and preparing the content of websites. I offer the following services: TRANSLATING, LOCALIZATION AND PROOFREADING English > Dutch Spanish > Dutch Italian > Dutch With an LL.B in Dutch Civil Law (The Netherlands), an LL.M. in European Law (England) and a Certificate in Fashion Design (Spain) and over 6 years of experience in the advisory and litigation practice and another 6 years in the textile industry, I have developed two main areas of expertise: legal and textile. My goal is always to provide high-quality. Having lived and worked in several countries I have the cultural knowledge needed to adapt your content to the target audience. I know when to be literal and when to convey the tone of the author. Depending on the complexity of the text I can deliver a 2000-2500 word job in 24 hours. RESEARCH AND CONTENT WRITING Since a year I combine my activity as a translator with website content writing. So far I have worked on three projects (tourism and wine), providing all written content, including slogans, legal documents etc. as well as making all necessary arrangements for programming. ADMIN SUPPORT With over ten years of experience organizing people and projects I have developed good organizational skills. I can help you streamlining your business and personal tasks so you can forget about the details and stay organized and productive. I’m a hard worker with an eye for detail and I’m committed to deliver before deadlines. I look forward to working with you!  less
