Bio
I am a Swedish native speaker with complete professional proficiency in English
and good knowledge of German. I have also studied Esperanto for fun.

I work from my home office and use the Office suite, Excel, Translator's Workbench, OmegaT, Wordfast, WordFinder, VLC, Term Assist and InDesign and Photoshop when necessary.



Originally from Stockholm, I now live in Uppsala, Sweden.
Translating is my passion, but I also enjoy literature (I run a book club),
film, trying out new sports (recently roller derby and climbing), growing
vegetables at my allotment and knitting/crocheting.

Assessment of my supervisors:
"Camilla has a high capacity to learn, shows a creative attitude and a healthy curiosity to work.
There is a high linguistic quality in her translations, and she finds elegant solutions to translations problems.
Camilla has spent quite some time on her translations, and in her latest texts, the corrections were hardly more numerous than in a text translated by our regular staff.
She has adapted well to a formal working environment where the average age of the colleagues is twice her own."
