About me
I specialise in Swedish-to-English business and financial translation, working with material such as annual reports, business presentations, investment research and economic analyses. I also copy-edit and proofread English financial texts, such as equity research. In addition, I translate and edit a range of marketing material, with a focus on producing engaging and natural-sounding English copy.

After gaining my MA in French and Russian translation I was employed for 10 years in the financial sector before going freelance. I worked for two years as a French-to-English translator at an international audit and business consulting firm in Paris. This was followed by six years as an English-language editor and writer at a global credit ratings agency in Stockholm. I then had a one-year stint as an editor and reporter at an international news agency and a brief period as an English-language editor of equity research with a major Nordic bank in Stockholm.

I use memoQ translation memory software, which can handle documents in most formats (including PDF and InDesign files) and is compatible with Trados.
