I’ll help you spread the word.
You care about the environment.
You want society to be built on fair & ethical standards that don’t come at the environment’s cost.
When you’re speaking to a new target market, it’s essential you connect straight away. Clear communication lies at the heart of all customer relationships, so I ensure your personality and values shine through.
I use unambiguous, professional and natural language to translate your message and engage with your audience, while bearing in mind any cultural considerations.
Services include: articles, brochures, websites, company presentations, business plans, magazines, videos/subtitles, newsletters, e-learning content, books/literature, SEO translation services – keyword research & localisation and content optimisation.
Editing & Proofreading
Mistakes are common. You can read through a text 10 times and still not spot the most obvious omissions or punctuation errors. That’s because your eyes read what they want to see. This can be dangerous for your reputation, both professional and personal.
I offer proofreading and editing services, brand guideline creation, and tone of voice documents.
Services include: press releases, newsletters, web copy, social media content, blog posts, advertising copy, product descriptions, leaflets, seminar/webinar materials, books/literature.
Multilingual Project Management
Multiple projects, languages and deadlines? Let me help!
I offer Dutch, German and Russian translation into English, which means you get a unique multilingual service enabling you to reach clients in multiple locations, using just one translator.
But if you’re looking for language combinations different to mine, just let me know. I work with a trusted pool of translators offering additional language combinations so you get a comprehensive service with the quality you’d expect.
Need help nailing your tone of voice, writing new web copy, blog posts or social media content? I write about a variety of subjects including swimming (open water & indoor), running, cycling, horse riding, hiking, paddleboarding.
Services include: web copy, blog posts, ghost writing, email newsletters, white papers, impact reports.
Video content should be accessible to all, whether you’re deaf or hard of hearing, or viewing content in a quiet space. I create subtitles and closed captions for TV shows, films, webinars, videos for websites and social media content.
Services include: English subtitle creation, English subtitles for deaf and hard of hearing people, subtitle quality control, English subtitle template creation (so that subtitles can be translated into additional languages).

“I’m glad to have worked with Marjolein on a big Dutch to English translation of a corporate website.
Marjolein is fast and precise. She knows how to translate texts flawlessly. She goes the extra mile to correctly translate technical jargon. And very importantly: she grasps the tone-of-voice and seamlessly translates the sentiment of a text.
I highly recommend Marjolein.“
Amke van der Linden, Communication Specialist @ Groendus
“What a pleasure it was working with Marjolein.
From the start, her approach was both warm and professional at the same time. I appreciated her effort to get the right tone of voice and she was open to my feedback. Marjolein was quick to respond to any questions.
I’m grateful that with Marjolein’s help, my services are more readily accessible.”
