I am interested in applying for the position of the English-to-French freelance translator, as seen on your website. I am currently launching myself as a freelance translator and possess a trilingual University degree in translation from a French University.
After working for the last 5 years as an in-house translator in various companies in Montreal, I have decided to seek work as a freelancer. Over the years, I developed strong abilities in translation, proofreading as well as in editing, in various fields such as marketing, advertising, subtitle translation and web site localization.
I grasp the French language perfectly and I am able to render the message with right idiomatic French words and expressions, adapted to the audience.
Furthermore, I am a person who can multi-task, and possess a strong creative sense, including taking initiatives. With each freelance project I undertake, I guarantee high quality work delivered on or before deadline and prompt response to your phone calls and emails. I do believe that my skills would be a valuable asset to your company. I am able to devote up to 30 hours per week to this job.
For more detailed information, please refer to my enclosed resume. I would appreciate a personal interview at your earliest convenience.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
Just some suggestions . . . less personal and more professional wording.
