Swedish interpeters?

Postby Gérardepardiou » Thu Jan 21, 2010 9:40 pm

Hej hej! Jag studerar svenska men det är inte sa bra nu :mrgreen:

I was wondering, is there any Swedish interpret that can explain me how's the market in Sweden? Because as everyone speaks english there, I suppose it's not really useful around... And I suspect the private market not to be really consistent. Am I wrong?

I don't think there is any interpreter with Swedish around the forum at the moment, but you can always visit the AIIC website and contact a few interpreters with Swedish.

I asked a few AIIC English A's about working with Swedish/Danish/Norwegian C a short time ago. Most of them said that unless you really want a Scandinavian language for personal reasons, if you are starting from scratch, it is better to go for German, which is really in demand as a C (for EN A). They said that most of the budget for "exotic" languages is now going toward the latest EU expansion countries, where people tend not to have English as a second language. I guess there is some work with trade unions between EN and DK/SV.

Depending on your other languages though, it might be a nice "extra" to have Swedish. There isn't a huge demand for Swedish C, but there are also not a lot of interpreters who have that combination. And once you have Swedish, Danish and Norwegian would be relatively easy to add...

Ha det bra, vaar saa godt!

I know of an interpreter with Italian A Swedish Bsim English C who has worked for all European institutions as a freelance. She now works on the private market both in Sweden and Italy.
