About me
Having lived in Denmark for almost half of my life and the other half in the UK, translating back and forth is second nature to me. This became prevalent when I switched my gymnasium degree for two years at an International Baccalaureate, as one needed to be able to switch back and forth between English and Danish seamlessly. Since then I have attended University here in Denmark as well as in the UK. I majored in History, but I have also studied English, politics, international relations, computing and European film studies to name a few. This gives me a valuable insight when it comes to translating.
While studying in the UK, I worked for Scotland’s leading tourist agency for four years. Since finishing my degree at Copenhagen, I spent six months teaching English in China before returning to Denmark where I have taught English, Mathematics and History at a local school. In the last year, I have also worked as a freelance journalist for Scottish Television covering Denmark during the European Championships in football in Ukraine and Poland. I have worked as a Personal Assistant to the Managing Director and operated as the Scandinavian public relations officer for Datours Gozo. In my spare time, I have spent three years coaching elite youth football in the Copenhagen area for BK Skjold with three league titles to show for it.
I wish to offer my services translating Danish to English and English to English specialising in the following areas:

Tourism and travel.
Academic papers.
Government and politics.
Education and pedagogy.
Social sciences, history, sociology and ethics.
Media and multimedia
Games, video games, gaming and casino.
Cinema, film, TV and drama.
General, Conversation, Greetings and Letters.

I also offer proofreading, editing, post editing, transcription and subtitling.

Yours sincerely

Neil Paterson
