I am a native speaker of English, from Australia. I am fluent in Swedish and have lived in Stockholm since 2003. My first translations were done in 2008, in my job as a financial services analyst. I found that the process of translation was something I enjoyed, so in 2011 I completed the national Swedish test and started taking freelance jobs.
I believe that good translators need to be skilled writers in their native language. Writing exclusively in English, I am the author of over 50 book chapters, research notes for corporate clients, and peer-reviewed academic papers.
My computer skills are excellent (I have Trados Studio), and I am accustomed to working to tight deadlines and on concurrent projects.
