My name is Olof Persson an academically trained translator with a Degree of Master in translation from Lund University. I have worked as a professional translator and proofreader since November 2013, both on individually on a freelance basis but also as part of a team at an agency.

Over the years, I have accumulated experience in a number of translation and proofreading fields, including marketing, legal, academic technical, manuals, philosophy, fiction, culture, culinary, tourism, political, museum texts, video games, children’s television, surveys and much more. While I have obtained a fair amount of experience, I am always looking to learn and improve my craft, be it through learning to work with new software, expanding my vocabulary, or learning new skills altogether.

Other qualifications include:

- Certificate in Advanced English from Cambridge University – Grade A

- Has written three theater scripts in English and is familiar with a wide range of language tones and styles, as well as being part of and leading large writing groups

- Proficient with several CAT-programs, including MemoQ and Trados

- Proficient with Microsoft Offices programs, mainly Word, Excel, and Powerpoint

- Fully equipped to perform, record and edit sound files for voice over and dubbing

- Has experience with performing quality assurance tests on dubs of children’s cartoons

I am always looking to deliver high-quality translations at a good price, within an expedient time-frame. If you believe that I would be a good fit for your project, let me know and I am sure we could come to an arrangement that both parties are happy with, both in terms of conditions and the delivered translation.
