Hi, I’m Linn Åslund
I’m a translator and my deep affection for the English language has accompanied me since I was a teenager. Except travelling and immersing myself in English literature, this affection has resulted in following certificates and degrees:
• Masters of Arts in English with a major in Translation Studies from the Linneaus University.
• Bachelor degree in English Literature and my essay Liminality and Gender Performativity in Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray.
• CPE with the grade A.
I also hold a Master of Social Science with a Major in Political Science from the Mid Sweden University.
I have experience in working as an archivist within Swedish National Archives, as information manager within the energy sector as well as prop maker for a theatre and as an English teacher for retired people.
I have a strong ability to quickly acquaint myself with new topics, a useful skill when translating and writing. My studies and my work life have also provided me with knowledge in a wide range of subjects, from gothic literature and queer theory to genealogy and public administration.
I am am member of SFÖ: The Swedish Associationof Professional Translators.
My first children’s book will be published in 2018 by Rabén & Sjögren.
