Bio
I am Jens Arvidsson, a translator living just outside of Gothenburg, Sweden. My mother tongue is Swedish and I translate from English to Swedish and German to Swedish.

I have a Master's degree in Translation studies. My master thesis is titled "The IKEA catalogue in Swedish and in translation. Cultural implications in the translation of marketing text". I also wrote essays on translation in miscellaneous subjects, from forestry to Samuel Pepys' diary. The program included courses ranging from the translation of scientific and engineering texts over popular science texts to literary translation and linguistic analysis.

I also have a B. A. degree (hons) in German. This degree also included studies in English (60 ECTS points / 1 year) and general linguistics (30 ECTS points / ½ year).

I can undertake translation projects in e.g. general software translation, web site translation, general subjects, agriculture, forestry, sports, history, genealogy, and linguistics.

Examples of recent translation projects that I have undertaken:
German to Swedish manual for a hydraulic lifting table
manual for an industrial silencer
translation of a web site and an information booklet for a company organizing language courses abroad
translation of guarantee service feedback templates for mobile phones
English to Swedish translation of a section in a Swedish language textbook
manual for a cutter pump
manual for a tablet computer
translation of a software for a warranty services web site
  translation of a genealogy software program and manual
