Need some help from someone who reads Dutch.

We have been presented with a translation to one of our Staff Reports; it’s in Dutch.

I need someone to read this over and check it for accuracy, please.

Here’s the original:

Here’s the translation:

Thanking you in advance,

I really don’t have the time to go into detail…but by just reading the Dutch text: it is clear that it wasn’t written by a Dutch person. Sort of like a google translate result, although some sentences are absolutely fine.

So not sufficient to post here. then.

Now see, this is what I needed!

Thanks.

And in what? Like 20 minutes? This place is really amazing sometimes.

Cool!

I agree: It is completely correct, but the tone/style/snark gets lost. The choice of U vs. je is the most remarkable style choice: That is something google has trouble with.

TL;DR - correct but awkward.

I deeply appreciate your assistance. Once again, Dopers are the best!
