Dear Mr. Jenner:
As a bilingual translator (English/Mandarin) with deep insight into both languages, I am interested in obtaining the position of translator/interpreter at [Company Name]. I am positive that I meet all the requirements that you have mentioned in your job description.
With my ability to translate letters and service plans, along with some exposure to speaking with people who have language limitations over the telephone and in person, I am confident that I will be able to do justice to this position. Since I am an enthusiastic individual bordering on passion, I am sure that learning the ropes will be a fast and fruitful process.
Specifically, I am knowledgeable in:
- Converting and translating the source language to the target language
- Speaking, reading, and writing fluently in English and Mandarin
- Compiling information and technical terms into glossaries and terminology databases
- Relaying the style and tone of both languages
- Rendering verbal and written messages accurately, quickly, and clearly
Besides my language skills, I offer excellent computer proficiency and attention to detail.
To provide you with a more profound view of my qualifications, I will be in touch with you after a few days. Until then, you may reach me at (000) 965-8547.
Thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
