“Enable your website to the Dutch market, boost traffic to your site and secure more customers, or get your English documents translated into Dutch!”
Why would you hire me?
If you want to enable your business to the Dutch market and need your website translated from English into Dutch or from Dutch into English, or if you need texts for your Dutch website, including excellent SEO that can boost traffic to your site and secure more customers, get in touch to discuss your needs.
I will make sure that your website is exactly like you have in mind – as far it is possible for the platform of your choosing -, and attractive for your target groups. I can also take care of the content by writing the Dutch ones or translate your English texts into Dutch or from Dutch to English. SEO optimized to get the best results you are aiming for.
Quality of Service
By working with me you can expect a level of professionalism and efficiency of service that goes beyond the mediocre quality you can find on the Internet.
Born and raised in The Netherlands with over 20 years of job experience in different international organizations, and a brain full of knowledge from studies, I firmly set the goal to give my clients what they need. Whether it is a new website, website content, an ebook or (technical) documents: I create, edit, proofread and/or translate it into Dutch or English for you. As I am a goal driven person, I am always looking for opportunities to get the best results in anything I do. I will be glad to help you accomplish your goals.
My experiences in my former jobs as a management assistant and personal assistant, help me to add the business knowledge and social capabilities into the technical world of coding. I create websites and I deliver services that come with having an online presence. I’m a sparring partner. I listen to your ideas, goals and what values you have to offer and align them with what your target groups want to see from you. If needed, I provide a sustainable after-sale support and maintenance of your website.
If I think that I am not fit for a particular task, or I am convinced that you can have better results of a task that requires other experiences than I have, I will tell you upfront.
Technical writing is high on my interest list: I am very experienced in translating manuals, reports, project plans, documents to get projects funded, and juridical documents like terms of conditions.
All documents I write and translate from English to Dutch and from Dutch into English, are according to the official style guides. I like to learn and I like to write about subjects based on facts through investigation and research, with the goal to inform and inspire people while keeping the differences in cultures in mind.

What former employers say about me:
Graeme Campbell, (former) Managing Director Be Informed, International Division
“Margareth was a fantastic colleague at Be Informed. She supported me through my early days in the business with secretarial resource and she did the job extremely well with an eye for detail and a GET-IT-RIGHT-FIRST-TIME attitude. Margreet was always the first person in the office and the last to leave and having her multilingual skills on tap was an enormous enabler for me as I got to gips in a Dutch company that was building a future outside the Netherlands. I’m therefore delighted to have the opportunity to recommend Margareth because I know that her enthusiasm and dedication to work is an asset that any business could take advantage of.”
Katja Jonker, (former) Office Manager international support Be Informed
“Margreet was steeds uitzonderlijk betrokken en gemotiveerd. Niets is haar te veel en regelmatig moest de nachtwaker haar ’s avonds laat naar huis sturen omdat ze er een hekel aan heeft werk te laten liggen tot de volgende dag. Margreet heeft dus bepaald geen 9 tot 5 mentaliteit. Ze luisterde steeds serieus naar opbouwende kritiek en deed daar ook echt wat mee. Ondanks de enorme werkdruk af en toe hield ze goed overzicht.”
Professor Michael Garrett, (former)General & Scientific Director at ASTRON Radio Astronomy
“Margreet is a very motivated person, self-propelled and extremely hard working. She enjoys her work immensely and is prepared to go the extra mile in order to provide support that goes well beyond the standard 9-5 mentality. She enjoys interacting with others, and easily makes connections even in a large organisation. She is well equipped to make a substantial and positive contribution to a wide range of different positions and working environments.”
Alida Michels, PR-medewerker RDW
“Margreet is een intelligente, enthousiaste en betrokken vrouw, die graag aanpakt en liever niet stilzit. Ze heeft een grote mensenkennis en gebruikt deze op integere wijze. Ze kan bovengemiddeld presteren in zowel de profit als de non-profit sector, vanwege deze combinatie van aanpakken en organisatiesensitiviteit. Margreet is iemand die ruimte nodig heeft om goed te functioneren, maar die ruimte is haar volledig toe te vertrouwen: ze is initiatiefrijk en resultaatgericht.”
