Professional practices Eivind Lilleskjaeret endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I specialize in translating texts regarding information technology, mechanical machinery and software localization. I also have extensive translation experience within the area of banking and finance (periodical reports).

Below you'll find some information about my background that is relevant to the work I do:
  • University degree (7 yrs) from the University of Oslo, German, English and Philosophy
  • Extensive training in IT and electronics
  • Full time translator since August 2000
  • Regular work for a high end translation agency in Oslo, Norway
  • My own regular clients include major PC manufacturers, IT service providers, mobile communications companies, newspapers, suppliers of technical equipment, suppliers of paper and office equipment, etc.
  • I have completed large scale projects involving technical manuals for trams, tractors and other agricultural equipment, as well as other types of machinery
  • In 2001 I translated more than 100,000 words of financial content

I am able to provide a full CV upon request.

Equipment & tools:
  • Dell Latitude D600 1,4 GHz laptop PC with CD R/W, and 512 MB RAM
  • Toshiba 866 MHz PC with DVD and CD R/W, 128 MB RAM
  • ADSL (broadband) Internet connection
  • Can receive email attachments of practically any size
  • Windows 2000 Professional
  • Office 2000
  • Trados 6.5 Freelance
  • Photoshop 7.0, Acrobat 4.0, HomeSite 4.0, CuteFTP 4.2, Eudora 6.0, and many more
  • Anti-Virus software, always up-to-date
  • Shelf upon shelf of relevant dictionaries and works of reference

In addition to being a translator myself, I also conduct multilingual projects, mainly between the Scandinavian languages, English and German. I have been doing this since August 2000, and the feedback from my clients has been very positive. I conduct a stern quality control procedure, and I am able to offer considerably lower prices than many of the larger agencies.

Please contact me if you have a project that is suited to my qualifications, either using the link on this page, by emailing me at, or by telephone +47 22 20 89 00. You may also want to visit my website at My company Fidotext Translations is VAT registered in Norway.
