Former English and Swedish teacher who has been working as a freelance translator and proofreader during the past five years.
Diligent and meticulous, and I never give up in trying to find and give a perfect translation even in areas that I am semi-confident in. You always learn interesting new things when translating.
My name is Angelica and I am a native Swedish translator and proofreader.
I am a fast and effective translator and writer. Used to work freelance and always deliver quick and accurate work. I have either worked as a translator or studied almost my entire adult life. I love language and to work with language and translations. Even if I am fast and effective always take my time to translate the text correctly and look up the correct terminology so the text I deliver are always correct. I also spent a lot of time proofreading my text to make sure grammar, spelling, layout and everything else is correct. I want to deliver high quality texts so I do take my time when it comes to make them perfect.
Devoted Swedish-English translator with 3 years of experience.
Able to work quickly & meet tight deadlines. Easily accessible at all times.
Previous translation projects include medical documents, user manuals, CVs, a Master’s thesis, invoices & more.
Besides my linguistic abilities as a native Swedish speaker, I also offer broad knowledge of Swedish cultural differences.
Experienced in many different translation fields, especially marketing & medical.

My name is Åsa and I'm a freelancer in translation,
editing and localization and very interested in working with
Swedish is my mother tongue, and for the past two years I
have lived and worked in London.
For two years I have worked as a freelancer at Upwork
(formerly oDesk), mainly with data entry, localization and
translation. During this time I have honed several skills,
such as working quickly, accurately and always with the client\'s need in mind. Many
tasks consisted of Swedish localization of English terms,
which has greatly increased my acumen and speed.
Although at university I studied primarily philosophy (but
also history as an undergraduate), I have always had a
strong interest in English language and literature and have
taken every opportunity to pursue this interest; for example during summers in
Edinburgh and London. Spending most of my spare time reading
has also increased my knowledge and understanding of the
English language and how best to translate it.
During my time at Swedish universities much of the teaching
was conducted in English and I wrote virtually every paper
and thesis in the language I love. I also spent an exchange
term at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.
Since i have been working since I was 16 years old, as an office assistant, administrator, bus driver, truck driver, receptionist, shop assistant, sales assistant, tax officer, construction and engineering administrator, project manager, insurance agent, documentation control manager, transcriber and translator, I feel no need to list all these jobs and educations below. My experience is vast, and i am still curious about almost everything in this universe.
After years of working as a Swedish Language Specialist, I started freelancing as a translator and proofreader in 2016. I have a great understanding of the Swedish language and consider myself being a very good writer. I promise to deliver on time, with accuracy and promptness.
