    Translator/proof reader

    Norway - Last active: 2 months ago

    My name is Anne Dorthe Gløtvold-Moore and I am originally from Norway. Currently I live in Colorado, USA. I attended Oslo University in Oslo, Norway to study education as well as Oslo University College to become a certified occupational therapist. I also graduated with a degree in organization and leadership. The last 3,5 years I worked professionally as an HR-Consultant at a major newspaper/distribution company in Norway (Schibsted Distribution AS). My responsibility included overseeing more than 700 employees in the Human Resources Department. I have also been a project leader for various company initiatives. Translation is one of my specialities. I was a written translator at previous work. More than 60 % of the employees did not have norwegian as their first language, therefore I was speaking and writing English constantly. I have a perfect understanding of english, both spoken and written. It is easy for me to translate Norwegian-English, English-Norwegian. I have also 3 years experience for working as an Occupational Therapist at Oslo University Hospital at the orthopedic division. My understanding of medical terms, and abbreviations related to medical terminology is solid. I love working with people, and it has been very rewarding for me to have had the opportunity to help people, both as a therapist and as a HR Consultant. Swedish or Danish are also languages I understand well, both written and spoken, and I am able to translate Swedish and Danish to English.

    BR Portuguese and English Translator/Transcriber/Subtitle

    Canada - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 3

    I'm a detail-oriented and committed translator, born in Brazil and based in Canada. As a native speaker of Brazilian Portuguese with fluent English skills from my many years living abroad, I can provide high quality translations and and/or related work. I have strong time management skills with a passion for delivering great service and meeting deadlines. Besides BR Portuguese <-> English translations, I can also transcribe and do subtitling in both idioms. I received my Michigan Proficiency Exam Certificate in 1998 and have been doing freelance translations since then. Almost all translations aren't just about translating a word or sentence - they're about getting a message across to people who don't understand the language in which a content was originally written/spoken in. This means there needs to be a full comprehension of meanings and idiomatic expressions with focus on content association instead of just literally translating vocabulary - which unfortunately happens more than often. So unless asked to be literal, my work includes proofreading and editing for content understanding. Proficiency in the written and spoken word in Brazilian-Portuguese and English have been key to my professional success in all my jobs so far.

    Writer and translator

    Norway - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 1

    I graduated with a major in composition and vocal performance in 2004, and have since my graduation worked as a freelance composer, lyricist and recording artist. I am currently signed to Warner Music Norway. I speak and write English on a daily basis in my work. Although writing is mostly music-related, being an artist I'm also well experienced with career-related daily social media updates and continuous content marketing. While composing music I work with technologically advanced softwareprograms such as Pro Tools and Logic. I quickly learn new programs and tools, and also love to do so. I'm a structured person with good time management skills, and as a recording artist the process from idea to finished product is often time-consuming and complicated; it requires vision and perseverance as well as insight and understanding of the various steps along the way to achieve a longed-for result. I work well with others, as well as independently, set goals and implement them.
