Dear Ms. Gazelle:
I recently came to know that Hamilton Telecommunications is looking for a translator to assist with a dynamic French project. Owing to my skills and passion, I am convinced that I am the right person for the job. Since my command over the French and German languages is exceptional, I am sure that I will be able to contribute not just to this particular project but to future ones too.
Translation is not simply converting a source language into a target one. There is a lot more involved such as maintaining the essence of what the writer or speaker wants to say and then eloquently translating it for the benefit of all parties involved. I am well versed in relaying the style and tone of the original language, and can easily compile technical terms and phrases into terminology databases.
I will call your office after a few days to follow up on my job application. Until then, I can be reached at (000) 999-2520. Thank you for your time and consideration.
