A traveller, reader and spiritual seeker, I am on the path of letting go of my old jobs and habits and do things that make more sense in life. Translating texts is one of them. I will provide you with accurate, skillful and style sensitive translations from Swedish to English or vice versa as well as editing, proofreading, transcription -- fast, intelligent and really well done to say it simply. I hope to work with you if you find that what I say resonates. I have a feeling you won't be disappointed.

My experience as a Staff Educator and as an Office Manager in Sweden has given me a thorough experience in the above mentioned skills, as has my personal passion for language and writing. My extensive travelling and living with my American girlfriend has helped to fine tune my English as well as given me experience in Portuguese and Hebrew.

My enthusiasm for and interest in the written word is the reason why I now chose to dedicate my time to what I truly enjoy, and one of the things that makes me happy: writing, translation and working with texts. I firmly believe that what is made with joy always leaves a better track both in terms of results and for all parties involved.

I hope I can be of service.
