I have a wide range of skills and experience within the use of language.
I have been translating on a freelance basis since 2003. I am proficient in both Norwegian -> English and English -> Norwegian, and will take on work in either. I have translated tourist brochures, medical interviews, university texts, among other genres, and have a good general knowledge base and a large enough vocabulary to take on anything but the most technical of writing.
As an Etsy seller myself, I have practised the writing of product descriptions extensively. I specialise in handmade items, but can also take on commercial products for a more general market. My descriptions range between one to four paragraphs, depending on what you’re looking for.
Blog Posts / Articles
I have kept blogs and online journals on and off for two decades, and have a well developed writing style. I can write personal and lifestyle posts or more technical articles about most things. My spelling and grammar are near impeccable and my pieces rarely require much editing. I have written pieces for blogs such as Coaching for Geeks, among others, and post semi-regularly between my own three Destai sites.
I am an experienced writer of fiction, although as yet unpublished to the wider world. I have been posting my short stories on blogs, online journals and message boards for over 15 years and am a respected wordsmith among people who know my aliases. My strenghts are shorter prose and poetry; if you’re looking for a novel then I might not be the right person.
