Your knowledge of the Dutch language is a bit rusty or non existent, and Google Translate doesn't cut it for you?

Wondering if there's any other Brit or native English speaking trans women here in the Netherlands?

I think there are several, but maybe not on the forum itself? Is bilingual an option for you, or is it a cultural thing?

Not a cultural thing, I don't like to infringe. Expecting people to speak English on account of me.

For my work, most of what I do is in English. I maintain an english blog and wrote several technical books in English.

Fun facts:
The Netherlands ranked first for having the best English-language skills in a country where English is not the native language.

English is widely spoken in the Netherlands, especially among younger generations. Of course, Dutch is still the primary language in the country, but many people are also fluent in English or have a basic grasp of it. That makes communicating with locals much easier for visitors who don't speak Dutch.
