    Translator and Content Editor

    Argentina - Last active: 12 days ago

    As a multilingual translator and content editor I understand how to communicate effectively with individuals who speak another language. For the last 20 years I have been communicating across cultures and I because of that can ensure that all parties involved in a project, regardless of geographic location and background, come together and stay together through successful project completion. I have been awarded a translation subsidy by NORLA (Norwegian Literature Abroad) for the translation of two books of a major Norwegian writer. I enjoy working with people remotely as it is to work face-to-face, and cross-cultural communication is not a challenge for me.
