Creative linguist helping your organization or company attract and engage its audience through solid translation, editing, writing, and other language-focused tasks in both Danish and English.

Particularly excited about assisting socially responsible organizations with projects related to sustainability, culture, marketing, science, arts, and travel.

My strong solutions are based on extensive experience with this kind of work across all sectors, an educational background focused on language, psychology, and organizational communication, along with the tailoring of my efforts to the specific goals of your organization and its audience.

Get in touch, and let's explore how I can help.



Check out a few of my accomplishments:

# Assisted large US translation agency with intense 3 million words localization and ongoing fine-tunings for a Danish version of well-known international fashion webshop. Successfully completed the project after a long string of solid, weekly deliveries, having ensured the constant quality of my work by referring to source pages, style guides, glossaries, and a number of functions available through the CAT tool WebCATT—all of this in addition to direct communication with both project managers and other affiliated translators.

# Contributed with thoroughly researched website content for Danish translation agency in need of new landing pages, blog posts, and other elements. Drew in the writing process on, for example, experience from the translation industry along with my knowledge about copywriting and digital marketing.

# Helped Irish agency finalize high-quality web content through Language Quality Evaluation (LQE) of localized Danish text for a variety of products from world-famous tech giant. Did the work through client company's specialized CAT and QA tools, applying also an extensive amount of reference material, including a tailored style guide for the Danish market.

# Completed the translation of one of the largest Scandinavian websites focused on informational material related to investment finance and cryptocurrencies. Working on a range of different content types, I made sure to apply current industry jargon and SEO best practices.

# Engaged thousands of daily visitors on one of Denmark's largest affiliate-based media platforms (daily visitor numbers at 100,000+) in my role as web editor and social media manager.

# Significantly increased the number of applicants to the master’s program in Anthropology of Health at Aarhus University by developing and executing a targeted communications campaign.

# Was directly responsible for around 33% of the ticket sales for large international tech and design conference, having handled all social media accounts and press contact.
