My career has led me to the study of politics in the international milieu after one year in marketing and management. An interactive part of a job is a major bonus for me, as I see my communication skills as one of my highlights. My attribute to speak 3 languages fluently (French, English and Norwegian), as well as six years with Spanish in school, and four years of German at university, has helped me to adapt quickly to different environments or work ethics. Raised in a French family surrounded by the Scandinavian culture has given me the ability to get the best from both worlds, as I see the Scandinavian part of me as the disciplined and self-reliable side, and the French as the cultural and self-confident.
My own cosmopolitan background and analytical interests in other cultures, together with a command of several European languages, have also left me confident in handling negotiations that require the reconciliation of different national approaches to otherwise common problems.
I have worked 7 years as an IT Engineer in different multinational companies as IBM, Orkla, Deutsche Bank and Grupo Planeta. In 2003 I took a MBA and started several businesses dealing with import/export of fashion clothes. At the same time I started my translation business.
I have been working with clients all over the world for over 10 years as a technical freelance translator in the language combinations Eng-Nor and Nor-Eng. I am 100% bilingual, meaning I have native proficiency in both these languages, and I am very able to translate in both directions.
I am a native Danish speaker living in Denmark. I have a Ph.D. in Social Science from Aarhus University (AU) and M.Sc. in Economics from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. I have more than 16years’ experience of English >Danish/ Swedish translation, mostly for 2 of Denmark's largest universities. I am competitively priced and I have built my reputation on accurate and timely service.
I have been working as a Technical Freelance Translator for 12 years now, ever since discovering http://www.proz.com. I have worked for countless end-clients as well as outsourcing companies around the globe and in a broad range of subject area.
