About me

Why me?

I have extensive experience in software localization, translation of marketing material, business communication, medical equipment, clinical trials, cosmetics and pharmaceutical documentation. My native language is Swedish with excellent mastery of written Swedish. I have near native knowledge of English and live in an English <> Swedish bilingual home. I have extensive knowledge and familiarity with both the Swedish and American culture and I am a certified English-Swedish translator by the U.S. Department of State, with a security clearance.


When working with me you will get an experienced, certified translator that use a procedure of research, translation, proofreading and editing by me and/or proofreading/editing by one of my trusted colleagues. I use the latest software in order to give you faster, more consistent translations, with built in layout. I can also perform testing of the localized software, on site or remotely. I have high standards for professionalism and customer service and strive to provide the best experience possible to my clients.


I am a proud member of several professional translation associations and represents and enforces their high standards. When I am not translating I serve the translation community as the language chair for American Translator Assocation's (ATA) English-Swedish certification program, and also love to share my background in marketing and my experience as a translator as a trainer of other translators. More information on my training, coaching and my published book can be found at Marketing Tips for Translators.
