Sveinbjorn Thordarson - Translation Service

Welcome to my translation service page. I offer high quality freelance translation for the following language pairs:

English to Icelandic
Icelandic to English


I have worked intermittently as a freelance translator since 2005. Other qualifications are listed on my CV. My main field of vocabulary expertise is everything related to politics, economics, information technology and academic jargon in the humanities and social sciences, but I can skillfully translate almost any non-technical texts, including prose fiction.

Samples of my work


I charge between USD 0.05 and USD 0.20 per word of source text to be translated, depending on magnitude, deadline and other relevant factors. My minimum charge per job is USD 40. I accept payment via PayPal or bank transfer.
