Hi, my name is Simon Lundqvist. I currently work as a freelance translator, proof reader and transcriber I have a broad range of interests and expertise, but most of all a great passion for linguistics and language.
Swedish: Native language
I grew up in Stockholm, Sweden. Swedish is a language that is near and dear to my heart. No other language has quite the same rhythm and nuance.
English: Native or bilingual proficiency (ILR scale)
I have lived, studied, and worked in New Zealand for a number of years, and so my written and spoken English is at a native level of proficiency and fluency.
I am very comfortable expressing myself both verbally and through writing in both Swedish and in English - in casual, formal, academic or medical contexts.
Creative thinking and writing
I have a diverse background and a broad range of interests to draw from, as well as an art school background which taught me to be creative in both thinking and writing.
Used to working within tight deadlines
I pride myself on being punctual, efficient and professional. As a personal point of pride, I always endeavour to deliver well in advance of any deadline.
I am proficient using a lot of different types of software, and I always seek to learn to use new tools and processes.
