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've been working as a freelance translator, editor, proofreader, copywriter, linguist and teacher for Norwegian and English since 2016. For translations, I have extensive experience with translation of websites and product descriptions, igaming, gaming and political topics.
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.
I have been working with clients all over the world for over 10 years as a technical freelance translator in the language combinations Eng-Nor and Nor-Eng. I am 100% bilingual, meaning I have native proficiency in both these languages, and I am very able to translate in both directions.
I have 20 years of experience as a tour leader, interpreter and translator for German and French-speaking tourists, presenting and marketing Scandinavia as a tourist destination, as a receptionist in hotels, as a customer consultant for an international tour operator and as a translator of technical texts, user manuals and commercial catalogs from English, German, French and Danish to Norwegian, using CAT-tools. I also have experience with website administration and web shops from many years of work with sales and marketing.
My mother tongue is Norwegian, I am fluent in English, German, French and Lithuanian.
My family, friends and colleagues know me as friendly, positive and active, but also as a person who enjoys working independently and purposefully. I have very good communication skills, I love challenges, and I am reliable.
Do not hesitate to contact me if you need translation, editing or proofreading in any of the languages mentioned above.
Sincerely Andreas Coldevin
