Resume/C.V.

I'm a native Swedish translator, proofreader and article writer. Since childhood I've been in contact with the English language through literature, both fact and fiction, technical manuals, movies and online communications. I started reading English fiction at an early age and came into contact with technical documents and manuals in relation to my interest in computer and studio technology during my early teens. My five years of university studies, with majors in history, archaeology and ethnology, contained a large percentage of English literature and I use English all the time in my daily life.
Service Description
I provide quick and thorough translations from English to Swedish and vice versa. I happily work on all kinds of projects where translation is needed and I also do proofreading and write articles. I deliver a high quality service within set deadlines.
