About Me

I am a freelance translator named Thomas T. Frost. I have lived and worked in Denmark, England, France, Luxembourg and Germany and used English, French, and Danish as working languages notably in IT, freelance writing, tourism, relocation, and translation.

  • Native languages: Danish and British English.
  • Second language: French as it used in France. Proficiency.
  • Comprehension of Norwegian.
  • Some comprehension of Swedish.
  • Basic German skills.

Apart from simply delivering a translation, providing a personal, friendly, and reliable service is an integrated part of the way I work. Organisation, punctuality, reliability and attention to detail come naturally to me.
