    Translator and Photographer

    Sweden - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6

    Since November 2014 I live in Sweden, working towards obtaining a farm to then convert into a permaculture food forest teaching facility. Before this I spent six years in Scotland, and before that I lived in the Netherlands. Dutch is my first language, but I'm fluent in English. I understand German quite well, enough for relatively simple translations from German into Dutch or English, and am currently learning Swedish. I have been a professional digital photographer for about a decade, until permaculture became a bigger interest, and will consider photography assignments (especially wildlife and landscape, but also architecture and human photography, and others). Also, I've spent hundreds if not thousands of hours using Photoshop, and am good at preparing photographs for use on the web or as prints, using photoshop for colour corrections, contrast and lighting issues, and other corrections. Producing more complicated imagery and layouts for folders or webpages is also something I've done a good few times.

    Bolivia - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 7

    I am a friendly caring person that loves languages and cultures and have a major in economics and a master’s degree in international commerce. I've travelled part of the world (USA, México, France, Spain and Dubai :)) and thanks to my hearing abilities it's been quite fun to learn both English and French. I have worked previously with translation and transcript for a French company and have lived abroad in the USA for over a year. I enjoy music in any language, reading medical articles and researches, economics papers, legal documents, environmental issues... almost anything that will open my eyes to new knowledge even if it is not deep profound. Currently I am working in my family’s business that provides industrial products to electrical projects in my country as an administrative assistant.
