Translation, editing/proofreading, research, writing


Springfield, United States


I am a Norwegian national with a degree in Linguistics and Translation (English <> Norwegian). As a translator and proofreader/editor I am experienced and knowledgeable, with an eye for details. I take pride in being efficient, hard working and professional. I am also a fast learner. I enjoy working with languages and possess good communication skills, which aids me in the accurate and proper translation of projects. My main language pair is Norwegian <> English, however I also translate FROM German, Swedish and Danish. I work in WordFast Pro, Trados Studio 2011, Across, MemoQ, XTM, and A.nnotate. ... more I have completed projects for companies such as Duracell, Bernina, LG, Microsoft, 3MK, Neoprobe, DSC gmbh, Covidien, Mineral Plast, Rolls-Royce, GE, Zagg, and more. My main fields of expertise are Medical and Technical texts, with extensive experience in IT/Electronics and Business, and of course, general texts. Whether working in a team or by myself, I strive to make the best possible use of my strong points. I am proficient in the use of computers, having used them extensively on a hobby basis, as well as for previous work. My experience includes some maintaining and updating of a database. I am familiar with MS Office tools, and I type approximately 50 wpm. My work experiences are varied and in several of my previous jobs I have had managerial responsibilities. As such I am used to being a self-starter and getting things done. less
