About me

I was born and raised in Sweden but have worked and studied abroad for a number of years. I lived in both the UK and Australia before settling in Reykjavik, Iceland in 2006.

I graduated from university with a master’s degree in translation of non-fiction texts (from English and French into Swedish) in 2006. Included in my university degree are studies in English language at Sussex University in the UK and Icelandic studies at the University of Iceland.

After university I worked part-time as a translator for a few years until 2010, when I first did an internship at the translation department of the European Commission in Brussels and then started my own company and began translating full-time. I mostly work with texts from various EU institutions but I also have experience in other fields, e.g. tourism.

Languages have been my passion for as long as I can remember, but I also take a keen interest in environmental issues, music, dance, architecture, and health & nutrition.

Please contact me for a full CV and information on my rates.
