You have put a lot of work into creating the perfect marketing brochure, website or corporate communication material. Now make sure it does not get lost in translation!

With six years experience in the translation industry and an academic background in Scandinavian Studies and Translation Studies, I offer high-quality translations from Danish, English, Norwegian and Swedish into German. My main focus is on marketing translation and everything that 'must sound good', including brochures, websites and magazines.
Fields of expertise include the public sector / EU, PR, media and culture, education and HR, tourism and leisure.
I am an Associate of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting and am continuously developing my language skills as well as my expert knowledge by visiting industry events, attending continuing education courses and following the media in my source and target language countries.
I also have experience in other language services such as subtitling and editing of language coursebooks.

You are welcome to contact me to discuss your project, receive an individual offer and get a test translation.
