Well.... I don't know what to say about this. I do know that all of the words are in English, but I don't understand any of them. And here I was thinking that one cover letter that I received awhile ago toped everything (I do good work, pay me what you want) but now I guess you've toped that. 


I do admire anyone who can speak/understand a different language of their native language, but IMO this doesn't qualify for that. Perhaps the use of Google Translate produced that cover letter. This could be the reason many jobs go without hiring anyone. 


Communication with clients wants and freelancers understanding of that, would be a HUGE problem.

last time I've seen some of those words was  when I was re-reading  Macbeth ;-)
...and I'm not sure even google  translate would recognize some of's like something between Jane Austen  and's a very thoughtful concept with disastrous execution, I'd say.

...sorry for my primitive reply ;-)

That is one brave freelancer.


I will be the first to admit that I have never stepped forward and put my cover letter or resumé up on a website in a language that wasn't my native language.


So kudos for sheer audacity.
