Elin Hellmark Kristoffersson has worked as a translator off and on, freelance and in-house, since 2008. She's a native Swede with a (Hons) Bachelor's degree from University College Cork and a Master's degree from University of Toronto, who in her spare time enjoys reading, writing, trying (very very hard) to get into yoga, chasing her crazy kitten around, listening to podcasts while playing Spider Solitaire, conversing with her family and friends, and doing a botched job of trying to pretend that she's not actually thinking about words all the time, every day, even now. She currently lives outside Stockholm, Sweden.
