    Swedish/English Translator and Writer

    Sweden - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 2

    Having a high level of fluency in both Swedish and English is something I definitely take pride in. Spending a lot of my time reading, and writing, whether it be science articles, news, or simply fiction, I feel like I'm constantly adding to my vocabulary and skill, as well. In actuality, I'm a software engineer student. Thanks to this, I have a good grasp of HTML code, and the likes, as well as good skills in "office"-related programs.
