In order to provide better services to my clients, I have focused on improving my writing skills this spring. I am taking an online course in Swedish writing skills called “Skriv tydliga texter”, with a book and exercises that are evaluated. Earlier I also took a writing course for English on Udemy to make sure I am keeping my writing skills top notch and can provide my clients top notch texts that are targeted to the reader and easy to understand. Now I cannot wait to dig in to more Swedish marketing texts, corporate communications, product descriptions, surveys and more.
I also recently returned from attending two translation conferences, the ITI Conference in Newcastle, England and the BP15 Conference in Zagreb, Croatia, where I also presented on social media for freelance translators. I attend these conferences to network with my colleagues and find co-working partners, but also to improve my skills in translation technology, get new business tips and improve my craft and business as a freelance translator. My clients will benefit by having an efficient, well educated and informed Swedish freelance translator.
Feel free to drop me a line if you want to know more about my Swedish translation services, how I improve my translation and business skills, or how I can help your company reach the Swedish market.
