Bio
Danish is my native language and I am a VAT registered translator specialising in English and Danish technical, medical, legal, and economic texts as well as small Russian legal, economic, and cultural texts.
I have been a freelance translator since 2005.

The purpose of this service is to provide translations that convey the meaning correctly down to comma level. Also, I pay much attention to ensuring that the language flow in the translated text is flawless and powerful - using a style that is suitable to the relevant target audience.
I have much experience with many Word features. For example, manual creation of complex table structures of numbers or other data.

Preferably, I translate:
English < > Danish
Russian > English, Russian > Danish (small to mid-sized projects at a time)
Norwegian ('bokmål' language version) > Danish (small to mid-sized projects at a time)
Norwegian ('bokmål' language version) > English (small to mid-sized projects at a time)

TRANSLATION DISCOUNTS:
If the project can be carried out using Trados, and the text includes repeated segments, the rate of such repetitions is reduced to 15% of the ordinary price. The Trados software can calculate the number of repeated words. If you are a recurring customer, any translation memory that I used for your previous project(s) will also be used for the discount calculation. In this way, the price will be reduced significantly for segments of your new text that match content of the translation memory by a similarity of down to 85%.
