Dear Mr. Parsons:

I've been a free-lance translator and I've worked in this position while living overseas. But now I would like to settle into a full-time position as a textbook translator for your company.

When I saw your posting on JobBankUSA.com for the position of English to German and English to Spanish translator, I felt as though I was the one for the job. I am fluent in all three languages.

My resume details my experience, but to be sure you know what I can bring to the job I'd welcome a personal meeting. Please call me on my cell phone: 888-888-8888 to arrange an interview. It would be great to meet you and hear what you have to say about Winthrop and Lowe and the work I would be doing for the company. Thank you for considering me by reading this cover letter.
