Service Description

I have recently returned to translation work as I would like to spend some more time working from home. Many years ago I did a lot of market- and medical research translation including transcribing audio. I have since had a career in magazine publishing as a repro and pre-press technician, working for, among others, one of Europe's largest publishing houses. I can offer you Swedish to English translation to a native standard as well as English to Swedish. Proof-reading in both languages undertaken. I can also offer Photoshop work such as retouching, colour correcting, colorisation of B/W images, scanning and restoration work.
