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.
Total work experience as a freelance translator constitutes 4 years. Currently working as a personal translator for a Norwegian company, where I mostly deal with correspondence, legal documents and financial reports.
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.
My experience includes:
• Non-fiction, official reports, academic documents, handbooks, consultations, brochures, marketing, press releases and a wide range of company documents such as prospectuses, memorandums of association, company profiles, key information documents (KID), annual reports and articles of association.
• Customers include publishers, ministries and subordinate agencies, local government administrations, investment funds, software companies, travel agencies, research agencies, charities and translation agencies.
• Services include translation, transcreation, revision, proofreading and finalising.
I have a Master or Arts degree and have been working with education / languages since I finished my degree in 2001. I have just started out as a freelance translator, but as you can see from my CV, I have many years of experience with translation work from both private companies and embassies.
