My freelance career as a translator started in 2011 when I combined interpretation jobs between Spanish/Swedish with translation jobs from English, Spanish and French to Swedish. After two years I decided to focus on translation only and my two strongest source languages: English and Spanish. Most of my experience in the translation field has been translating marketing material, brochures, organizational communication, tourism/travel, fashion/clothing, cosmetics/beauty and technical texts. I also have some experience in localization of websites, apps and games.

As I have previously worked as a Key Account Manger in technical sales, my specialisation within Business/PR/Marketing was an easy choice. Besides this I have also studied Industrial Management and am familiar with the Logistics area (Lean and Six Sigma.). Being a mother of three (ages 6, 7 and 16) as well as having the work experience as a language teacher at high school has been very helpful when translating apps and games for children as well as educational material. With two years working as a hotel receptionist in Mexico I also have hands on experience from the hospitality business and am therefore very familiar with travel/tourism related material.
I take continuous development seriously and am determined to learn more every day. For this reason I continue to study the languages I work with whenever I have the chance as well as explore as much as possible about creative writing and PR/Marketing. In August 2018 I began studying at University again to get a Masters degree in translation, which will be ongoing studies, part-time, until May 2020.
I work with the CAT-tool Trados Studio 2017 and have experience working in MemoQ and Memsource. An interest in technology has been with me since the early days, from when my grandmother gave me a Commodore 64, which has given me a true interest from start and a good knowledge of technology in general. Both PC and Mac are used in my work and I have access to both iOS and Android tablets/cell phones. Social media is interesting to me and I use it on a regular basis and am thus well accustomed to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIN.
My base is in the Swedish countryside where I have my home office. I work from English and Spanish into Swedish, my mother tongue. My main focus lies within translation and transcreation. If you find my background interesting and believe that I can be of help on your future projects please don't hesitate to get in touch!
