I’m a native Brit working on translation, localisation, transcription and proofreading projects. I live in the best corner of England - the Lake District! I’ve spent more than 10 years honing my skills in sales and marketing and getting to know customer buying habits, so you don’t have to!
I’ve spent more than 10 years in a large multinational corporation and learnt from the best. Now, I’m working for myself and bringing all the zeal, positivity and dedication that freelancing brings with it to each new project. I relish every new opportunity and love meeting new clients and their businesses.
I find myself glued to my screen every day, because although this is my ‘job’, it just doesn’t feel like it. I get paid to do what I love, so why not let me bring all of this knowledge and enthusiasm to your next project?
Over the last 14 years, I have used my three languages extensively in my career as translator, international account manager and marketing specialist. For more than ten years I managed global accounts for a manufacturing company into Germany, Russia, Poland, Italy and the CIS, which entailed travel for a minimum of one week a month.
As a natural networker, I built strong market relationships and had to manage key customer relationships carefully and respectively. Working for one of the top five fine paper manufacturers in the world, means that I have extensive experience in project management, customer relationship management, manufacturing processes and principles, and translating customer requirements into end products.
It was a pleasure working with Marjolein! She was part of our team of English translators for a very complex project in May and June. She stood out as being extremely responsive and delivering on time - or earlier than expected!
When it comes to translation, Marjolein is a true professional from start to finish. She is prompt and precise in her work, consistently providing accurate texts well within the requested time frame. Highly recommended!
