Professional experience
Since 1983, I have been working in Antwerp as an independent translator, specializing in Scandinavian languages (mainly Norwegian), English, French and Dutch. In 1996, I started my own company (E. Dupont bvba).

Source languages :
Dutch, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, English, French, German.

Target languages :
Dutch, Norwegian, English, (Danish, Swedish).

I have been sworn in at the Antwerp Court of First Instance for the following languages :
Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, English, Dutch.

Word Processing Programmes : MS Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access).

Additional information :
I am bilingual as I was brought up in both Norwegian and Dutch. Having 30 years of experience as a freelance translator, I think I can deliver high-quality translations within the agreed deadline. I work together with colleagues (always native speakers) for translations to Swedish, Danish, English, Finnish and French, and for proofreading of my Norwegian and Dutch translations. I have a lot of experience with multi-lingual assignments both to and from the Scandinavian languages.
I have been a member of the B.K.V.T.F. (Belgische Kamer voor Vertalers, Tolken en Filologen / Belgian Chamber of Translators, Interpreters and Philologists) for several years.
I started up my own company (E. Dupont bvba) in 1996.
