I have over 6 months of translation experience with Swedish to English!
I’m Martin Emslie, born and raised in English speaking Canada, along with being fluent in the Swedish language for over 10 years!
I previously studied and worked in Sweden and Denmark for just under 2 years, including the use of Swedish as the working language. I continue to travel internationally to Sweden on a near annual basis.
I also enjoy maintaining the language through weekly podcasts, film and interior design literature and books in Swedish from my travels there.
I have a few years of communications experience working as a proposal writer, a large festival Public Relations Coordinator for over 3 seasons, public speaking engagements as alumni and for industry associations, providing customer support via email and a blogger and writing of a few books on interior design.
I have over 3 years of experience working as a market researcher. I previously worked in local government, social services, higher education and advertising and marketing consulting.
