Translator, researcher, editor, language teacher.

I have been working as a translator since 2000, mostly as a freelancer.

I have a BA in History and Philology (English Language & Literature, and History), an MA in Comparative History, and I am a certified teacher in Romania, Sweden and now Norway (core academic subject English, History, SVA).

I focus on academic translations, with a specific interest in social sciences (academic articles, primary sources, books). I immensely enjoy translating historical novels, novels tackling historical or sociological themes, and crime fiction.

For further details regarding my work and experience as a translator or if you wish to cooperate with me please contact me at [email protected]

I look forward to working with you!

Ilona Roberts
