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.

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.
I am a Swedish native living in Poland since 2009, and I can translate from English or Polish into Swedish. I have recent work experience from IT and earlier experience from bank/finance. My University degree is a BS in Computer Science.
After five years working experience as a Swedish Language Specialist I recently started freelancing as a translator and proofreader. 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.
I am a freelance translator based in Finland with Swedish as my mother tongue.
I am, organized, punctual and honest. If I do not feel comfortable that I can deliver a good translation within the allotted time, I will say so before committing to the job.
Feel free to e-mail me about any questions or job offers and I will get back to you within 24 hours.
Just a Swedish guy living in spain, i Speak,write and comprehend perfectly 3 languages so I thought I might give it a shot at translation. I worked for several years as a PA and translator for the owners of various businesses
Do you need natural-sounding, seamlessly flowing content adapted to a Swedish audience? You're in luck. I have experience translating, localizing and/or copywriting websites, advertisements, CV:s, dictionaries, and texts about history and literature. I have worked with companies within the fields of medicine, IT, e-commerce, tourism, and economy.
I avoid word-for-word translations. Having honed my stylistic chops through studies in Creative Writing and Swedish Literature, I have an ideal skill set for localizing and selling your content to a Swedish target audience. My proficiency in English, Spanish and German is the fruit of my extensive international experience. I have lived for half a year in Ireland, two years in Spain, and I am currently on my fourth year in Germany. I have studied at university level in all four of my languages, earning top grades.
My clients are usually particularly satisfied with my attention to detail. In my translation work, I tend to find things to improve in the source text. All too often, I see otherwise acceptable texts being ruined by poor punctuation, incorrect use of prepositions or imperfect word choices.
When I am not busy perfecting your texts, I am writing my M.A. thesis in Global History at the Free University of Berlin. My studies have given me the opportunity to work with historical sources from a wide range of linguistic contexts. In addition to my main languages, I am happy to translate your French, Portuguese and Italian texts.
