Smart and Human

All translations are conducted by humans. Machine translations have proven their value, but people are still better at finding little misunderstandings that may arise in cross cultural communication.

Cover Language is aware of the world of today, that is why most of the work takes place online. This allows fast and easy communication and borders do not provide boundaries anymore. Our clients can be found in New York as well as New Zealand and I will do my best to work with the office hours in different time zones.


Cover Language supports the environment and therefore prints certified translations on FSC approved paper.


About Janina

About Janina van Nielen

I am a certified translator of English and Dutch based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

While growing up in The Netherlands the English language has always played a major role in my life. It all started with my mother’s extended family in England, but it wasn’t until 1999 while spending a summer on my own in Australia at the age of 16 when my passion for the language sparked into the flame it is now.

As I wanted to kindle that same fire in the next generation of teenagers I followed the BA Teacher Training programme at Rotterdam University and started working as a teacher, but after a few years I realised I wanted to do more with the language and enrolled in the English Language and Culture programme at Leiden University where I received my MA in translation with a specialisation in legal translation in 2013.

After gaining a few years of working experience in translation I decided it was time to be certified and venture out as a freelance translator. I am registered in the database of certified translators in the Netherlands Wbtv nr: 10071.


Cover Language offers several language services

Translation in English and Dutch

Cover Language offers translations both in English and in Dutch. I have a degree in translation of both language pairs and I have gained experience translating texts in these pairs over the past years.

Certified translations in English and Dutch

If you need a translation of official documents, I can guide you through that process. I am a certified translator sworn in by the District Court of Rotterdam and registered in the Dutch database of certified translators Wbtv nr 10071. The translated document will meet all necessary requirements set up for certified translations. I only use insured mail services when returning your documents.

Rush translations

When time is of the essence Cover Language offers rush translations without loss of quality. Your rush job, depending on the type of text, can be finished within 48h. Given that certified translations need to be delivered in hard copy I do not offer rush services for them.


If you have an English or Dutch text you would like to have proofread or edited I can provide help with that as well. As a translator and a teacher I have a keen eye for flaws or mistakes and will help you improve your text to get the message across the way you intended it to.

Language training

Having over a decade of experience teaching English at all levels and being acquainted with both business and legal language, I will be able to bring your knowledge of English to the desired level. Training can take place in person or remote over Skype.
