    Swedish/English Translator and Writer

    Sweden - 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.

    English-Spanish / Spanish-English Translator

    Argentina - Tests: 5

    I'm a native Spanish speaker with bilingual knowledge of the English language. After more than ten years of study in the subject I have complete grammar and sentence building skills.

    Malin A.

    Translator and proofreader

    Canada - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 5

    I provide translation from Swedish to English and English to Swedish, and proofreading in both languages. I'm completely fluent in both Swedish and English and derive strength in translating from understanding the connections between the two. I'm also a very picky reader and writer who won't let any unnatural phrasing pass. My goal is a happy end consumer - a target reader who doesn't notice the text has been translated from another language. I'm a longtime spare time writer-for-fun, and I've always enjoyed proofreading for other writers to help take their work to the next level. Whether you need a quick once-over or extensive editing with suggestions and comments, I'm here to help. My first translation job was for Gothenburg University, translating course summaries for the Biomedical Laboratory Science program into English. Since then I've gone on to translate websites, mobile apps, medical documents, advertising material and much more! What I love about freelancing is that I'm always learning something new. For 300 words or less I charge a minimum rate of $20.00.
