Welcome to The Traveling Translator

My name is Silvie van der Zee. As a translator, I’m happy to help your company tap into the great potential of the Dutch market. I specialize in marketing texts for the travel and tourism sector, translating your English texts into a memorable Dutch campaign.

My services as an English – Dutch translator

I translate English texts into Dutch. I’m specialized in English marketing and e-commerce texts in the travel and tourism sector. I deliver translations that are tailored to your needs, and guarantee a translation that’s suitable in all situations and deadlines. Thanks to my years of experience working on marketing texts for the travel and tourism sector, I not only ensure that the translation is technically correct, but I’m also keenly aware of the latest terminology.

Cultural consulting

I advise you on the best way to convey your message to Dutch consumers, taking into account any relevant factors based on culture, history or current events. Since I travel widely, I encounter many other cultures. I get the chance to understand the context of the source text, as well as the Dutch cultural context of the intended translation.

My approach to English-Dutch translations

If you choose The Traveling Translator, you can count on solid cooperation. Clear communication, advice tailored to your needs, guaranteed delivery on the agreed date, and flexibility that fits your business processes: these are my priorities. You know exactly what you’re getting, for a predefined price.

My passion: travel

Why should you choose me when you need an English-Dutch translator? Because I’m a passionate traveler too! I love exploring new cultures and marveling at all the beauty that this wide world has to offer. From Croatia to China, from Cuba to Cairns: I’ve been there! Over the past years, I’ve spent several stretches of time living as a digital nomad all over the Canary Islands. I’ve even lived in Canada and Spain, which gave me a chance to see the Dutch culture from an outsider’s perspective.

My background: tons of experience

I have tons of experience with a wide range of international customers, including Airbnb, Booking.com, Easyjet, Expedia, GetYourGuide, KLM, National Geographic Traveler, Tripadvisor and the tourism websites for Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I’ve also worked for various major multinationals, including Apple, Facebook and Google. I graduated from Utrecht University in 2011 with a Master’s degree in English Translation.
