Experienced Norwegian Translator / SEO Specialist

Norway - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 2

I've always had a passion for the English language, and consider myself to have a higher capability in the language than most non-English people. I've done quite a few translation and proofreading jobs from/to English over the past 3 years, which I've found to expand my vocabulary even further. Over the past 3 years, I have worked on SEO (Search Engine Optimization) for countless websites, using mostly Moz and Google tools. My core value is to threat every project like my own, and will therefore always strive to be original, creative and thorough. I will never miss a deadline that has been agreed upon. I also have experience with Wordpress, Magento, Refinery, Excel, Linkbird and basic HTML.
