    Marco S.

    Author and a native speaker of Danish

    Denmark - Last active: 16 days ago - Tests: 4

    My name is Marco! I am a young and very straightforward employee, who is always ready to make a hundred percent out of the material I am given. Simply a young and successful man that you can count on! I hope you wonder why you should choose me instead of all the others? Well, first of all I can say that I have about 5 years of experience in translating English-Danish and Danish-English. I am a native speaker of Danish. Currently, I am studying English and have done this for several years now. Another very important thing to know about how I work is that I would rather use another 30 minutes to check for mistakes, than hand over a product that is of a lower standard than it could be. As a translator, I do not just translate. I try my best to find the perfect word to get the same message out there when the project is translated. As a translator, I aim to provide the best possible experience for those who are going to read it later. Because of my mixed family roots, I am a quick learner of new languages and I have currently been studying French for the last 26 months.
