Bio
I am a Norwegian citizen who has been based in England for nearly 7 years. In addition to translation I work in the wider area of theatre/show business, and to me a good translation needs to not only take into account the literal meaning but also the cultural context, humour and tone of the original.

My first interest in translation came from watching films and TV shows and recognising just how often the subtitles are not only bad, but the translator has flat-out not understood a joke or a cultural reference. It takes extensive knowledge to translate cultural content, and so instead of getting a degree in translation I chose to move to the UK and truly immerse myself instead.

I am now available for freelance work, both one-off items and ongoing collaborations.
