Native Norwegian with 20+ years of editorial experience, having worked as a translator, journalist and editor with both printed magazines and websites since 1996.
Translation-wise, I have worked extensively with translations from English, Danish and Swedish to Norwegian, for several of the largest media companies and publishing houses in the Nordics, as well as other major multinational corporations. Most recently, I have worked on localization projects for some of the world's biggest players in sectors like logistics, fitness and security.
I can provide very quick turnaround on projects, never outsource anything and I am very thorough, dependable and flexible.
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.
An adult education teacher with experience in technical translation, consulting and data management. Advanced proficiency in various software packages and business suites. Proud of outstanding organizational skills, beneficial in both personal and professional life. High interpersonal skills in client-oriented work frame.
