Technical/marketing German/Swedish/Danish/Spanish/Catalan > English (UK) translator. Specialisation in Renewable Energies. Experience in Level 1/Level 2 IT support. Proofreading and style checking. 3 years experience in translation Project Management.
I have 15 years of experience as a full-time freelance translator, working for leading agencies throughout North America and Europe. My language pairs include Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, and French to English (US or UK), and I work in virtually every subject area with very few exceptions. Additional language skills include intermediate German and elementary Estonian. As a publishing writer with an academic background in philosophy, literature, and linguistics along with professional experience in copy writing and content development, I bring a high level of readability and commercial finish to my translations. Clients benefit from my high level of availability and responsiveness and my established track record of delivering on time or early.
I am a professional translator who specialises in business translation with previous commercial experience working in the marketing, finance, IT, aerospace and marine sectors.
I work to combine my corporate background and professionalism with my interest and enjoyment of languages. As a result, I believe my work to be accurate and detailed, but also fluid and readable.
I am perfectly bilingual, with two equal native languages - English and Norwegian.
There was no option for adding a second native Language here in SmartCat, so I am guessing it's quite unusual :)
