Professional practices Sofia Englund endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I'm an English-Swedish freelance translator specialising in marketing and advertising texts. I love transcreation, adaptation and other text that are creatively challenging! My clients include translation agencies, advertising agencies, production companies and small to large businesses in various industries all over the world. 

I've studied communication, linguistics and creative writing at university level for 6 years, and I've also lived in English-speaking countries for more than 7 years in total and still live in a bilingual household, so I have an intimate knowledge of the culture and really understand idioms, cultural references and other things that easily become pitfalls for a translator. 

I am a member of SFÖ (Swedish Association of Professional Translators) and follow their rules and regulations. I work in SDL Trados Studio 2017, but I'm also proficient in MemoQ, Memsource, Smartling and other CAT tools. 

Would you like to work together? Please visit my website to find out more about me, or send me an email at [email protected]

I look forward to hearing from you!
