Required Dutch,English,Translation,Translation English Dutch freelancer for Translator English to Dutch for country guides job

Posted at - Nov 13, 2022


I'm looking for someone to help me translate country guides from English to Dutch.

The guides are written in conversational English and should be translated into conversational but correct Dutch. I myself write in Belgian-Dutch so preference will be given to translators who can translate into Belgian-Dutch or who don't have immense Dutchness shining through in their writing.

I'm open to applications from non-native Dutch speakers but do note that your Dutch need to be so good you can pass as native. If you know it isn't, please don't apply.

The guides are between 3,000 and 5,000 words and don't include any technical terms or anything else that might cause problems during translation. I'd prefer paying a fixed price per guide to paying hourly or by the word so that we both know what to expect and especially so that I know how many of these I can outsource each month.

I respect your time and whatever rate you choose to quote but want to be upfront and say my budget is rather limited. Please take that into account when applying. Also, don't mind the budget added with the job posting. It's just there because I couldn't leave it empty.

In total, I have over 30 guide translations to outsource over the span of several months with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 4 guides to translate each month, but I'm happy to discuss this number based on your availability. I'll be trialing several writers if several good applications come through and hope to find someone I can keep on board after this project is finished for other translation work. There might be additional translation work during this project for you as well if you're up for it.

I can share links to the guides in English so you have an idea of what you'll be translating when you pass the first selection phase, at which point I'll also ask you do to a paid first translation to see if you're a good fit.

If you apply, please include the following:
  • Samples of previous translation work, preferably with the source text included
  • Samples of your writing in Dutch if you have any
  • Why you'd be a great fit for this job
  • Your availability
  • Your rates
  • Anything else that might be relevant

Applications that don't include the above or fail to meet other criteria mentioned will not be taken into consideration.

Thanks for applying. I'm looking forward to seeing if we can work together!
