Professional practices Perry Svensson endorses's Professional Guidelines.


I have worked as a part-time freelance translator from English and Chinese into my native language, Swedish, since 1998, dedicating 4-5 hrs/day to my freelance translation. The majority of that work is from English to Swedish. In the afternoons and evenings, I am  an in-house translator, managing six translators as chief translator at a local newspaper.

I specialize in corporate business codes, general business texts and communications (HR, online learning etc), consumer electronics (computers, cameras, home appliances, headphones and so on), mobile phones, SLR camera manuals as well as marketing texts/communications in these and other areas.

In addition, I translate texts in a wide variety of fields on an ongoing basis, in areas such as tourism, clothing/apparel, general technical documents (NAS units, to mention one), IT/internet-related documents and so on.

I have translated a large body of mobile phone software strings and manuals for a local Taiwanese manufacturer. In addition, I enjoy working in the areas of government/politics, Taiwan/China-related texts, a field in which I have extensive knowledge, as well as photography and bicycling, two active hobbies.

I translated three of the essays in the book "Jag har inga fiender, jag hyser inget hat, Valda dikter och texter" by Liu Xiaobo (ISBN 978-91-85849-55-0, published in November, 2011), a collection of texts by 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo, from Chinese to Swedish. I also translated parts of, and oversaw and managed the translation by me, two other translators and an editor, of Shih Ming-te's book "Common Sense" (ISBN 9868552354), from Chinese to English.

I was a sworn translator (Auktoriserad Translator) from Chinese to Swedish certified by the Swedish National Board of Trade (Kommerskollegium), but certification expires when residing outside the EU for an extended period of time (I now live in a country where the source language is spoken=.

I have received training in machine translation post editing from one of my clients, and will also consider such projects.


  • Business documents (business
    conduct codes, anti-corruption manuals and policies, discrimination and
    harassment policies, human resources, general business documents,
    business communications, personnel surveys, and e-learning courses in
    these areas)
  • Consumer electronics manuals (camera manuals, home appliances etc)
  • Taiwan/China affairs/sinology
  • Government/politics/political science
  • Photography (an active hobby, I (try to) sell stock images)


I also work in tourism, marketing texts, bicycling and other areas, but
as a rule reject technical legal and medical texts, although I may
consider general texts in these areas
