 You just copied and pasted an incredibly boring and meaningless overview text from the Internet. Your portfolio is meant to showcase your best work (if that is "your best work, you'll struggle) and you claim to have fluent English skills which you a) don't need in your category and b) don't have.

Clients looking at your profile find nothing that makes you stand out from the other 50 to 100 people who apply to their jobs. So why would they hire you over all the other people who applied?

 Research other freelancers who offer the same skills and learn from their profiles, take many tests, don't rely on freelancing for your sole income, it is not reliable even for the most successful ones.

I'm seeing a whole lot of "you" in here, and not a whole lot of what you can do for the client. Below is a QUICK edit to use as a starting point.

Hey everyone! I am a native Dutch speaker and fluent English speaker. I've done different kind of jobs with different kinds of themes. Some of them are legal translation, general translation, data entry, transcribing and much more. I am an articulate, confident person who relishes challenges and working under pressure. I want to gain employment where my education, work experience, skills and potentials, will be utilized and can be used effectively. I am self-driven, can do multitasking, detail-oriented and self-motivated individual. Well-versed in using MS EXCEL, MS WORD, PowerPoint & Movie Maker. I am accurate and have a fast keying skills with 100wpm and sound knowledge of computer applications. I have proven ability to collect and manage information efficiently and accurately. I am excellent in written and verbal communication skills and have a strong desire to work hard and perform well. I also have an ability to work to deadlines and to work fast; also and have a keen attention to work details. I don't want to praise myself. Because I believe in work, not words. We can work together for more profitable & good work relations. Just message me and let me know as soon as you read this, so that I can start as soon as possible.Thanks for reviewing my profile..

 Kasuni, the problem is, you only offer one skill, and you present in your profile that you can't do it, so there is no incentive to hire you.
