Petter Mattsson (translator)


Swedish novel translator and proofreader

Petter mattsson

My name is Petter and I’m a bilingual freelance translator (Swedish and English). I have a background in technical information design, as a translator and writer of technical products and user manuals. Later I changed path and got a Degree of Bachelor of Science in Social Work and worked in that field for five years.

For the last year I have been travelling, studied language as well as doing freelance translator work. My main focus is translation for novels, and I have translated and done proofreading of several American novels in the mystery genre.

My priorities are:

Manual translation


Producing a correct translation that feels natural to read

Prompt delivery

Good communication throughout the project
