About me

Native Swedish translator and proofreader, specializing in cultural, legal and automotive texts

It seems there is someone impersonating me and sending my CV from a hotmail, outlook or gmail address. Please note that the only Irene Elmerot in the world, and therefore the only translator, doesn't have a hotmail, outlook nor gmail address with any version of my name in it. If you get such a scam job application from a hotmail, outlook or gmail account, please tell the sender you know it's not me and throw that email in the garbage.

Currently, I'm not accepting any new clients, since I am doing a second Master's degree, this time in Slavic languages.

I have been working freelance since 2001 with direct clients and translation agencies, mostly in Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands, but also in other parts of the world.

Most of my work is made out of technical texts directed to end clients, like water heating, railway construction, automotive (motorcycle preferred!) descriptive texts. However, I have an interest in social sciences and the humanities as well, as you can see in my list of interests here.

Direct translation and editing clients include publishing houses Bonnier Tidskriter, Egmont tidskrifter, Clue (NO), Hodder & Stoughton Ltd (UK), Linghardt og Ringhof and Politikens forlag (DK) and the Swedish National Heritage Board (Riksantikvarieämbetet), but also some proofreading for universities and publishing houses (the translation of Ursula K. Le Guin's The Telling into Swedish, for example!).

I'm a qualified revisor of both translations and original Swedish texts. Previous clients include the university in Göteborg in Sweden and Västarvet, a cultural and historical organisation for Western Sweden. Assignments are then paid by the hour or by project.

I ride a Triumph Bonneville and read several motorcycle magazines. I got my knowledge of ships from trips on the sea when I was a kid, but later also from working at the Maritime Museum of the city build for seafarers, Göteborg. I still on occasion work as a guide in the City of Göteborg, which has the largest sea port in the Nordic countries. History and archaeology has always interested me, as well as travelling the world.

I translate from Danish, Dutch, English, French and Norwegian into Swedish, but I also know Latin well enough to translate to and from it.
Please don't send me medical texts, though, since that's not my cup of tea – send those to experts of those subjects instead. I'm a proud member of the Swedish Association for Professional Translators (SFÖ) and also a member of literary translation community Översättarcentrum. Since 2010, I'm also part of Translation Corner, a co-operative of four translators that can help you solve your linguistic problems even better than just one person can.

I'm also a Wordfast trainer, so Swedish or English speaking persons interested in a course, please contact me! I've held classes for UNOPS in Denmark, Casall, Lidl and Agronomics in Sweden and for various colleagues in Sweden and the UK.

My prices are on a northwest European upper standard level, considering the fact that I live in Sweden and pay everything here. Please ask, if you have a specific job that you need my expertise for. I accept payment in euros, Swedish SEK, Danish DKK and British GBP.
If the job is a big one, the price can always be put to discussion!

I usually use Wordfast (Classic and Pro) as my translation application.
