Welcome to AmeriScan Translation!

If it's translation to English, proofreading or editing of English texts you are looking for – you've come to the right place. As a professional translator, I offer high quality work at the best rates!

About Me

My name is Dana Sackett Lössl, and I have worked with translation from Danish, Swedish and Norwegian into English for over 25 years.

I am a trained (M.A.) translator certified by the American Translators Association – your guarantee for quality translation.

Because I have lived half of my life in the U.S. and half in Denmark, I have in-depth knowledge of the language and culture of both countries.

Professional translator – native speaker

My Services


I offer translation into English from Danish, Swedish and Norwegian. If you are interested in another language combination, just ask - I may be able to help. I work with a network of skilled translators around the world.

From brochures, user manuals, business correspondence, contracts, birth certificates - I can translate almost anything.

My focus is always on perfectly transferring the meaning and tone of the text to English and that is why I never use machine translation. I do, however, use translation memory and other tools such as SDL Trados so that I can work faster and more effectively – saving you money and ensuring the right terminology.

Editing & Proofreading

I can also help in other phases of document production, for instance when editing or proofreading is needed.

While proofreading usually involves checking a text for minor spelling and punctuation errors and the like, editing is more extensive. It involves, for instance, giving the text clarity and a natural flow, so your message comes across in the best possible manner.

Fast and effective, but thorough!


My rates are highly competitive and based on a number of factors, such as deadline, format (e.g., Word, Excel, PDF) subject matter, level of difficulty, and any external proofreading services required.

Prices for translation are normally quoted as a rate per source word or as a fixed price. Other work, such as editing, may be charged by the hour or word. Contact me by email for a nonbinding offer.

Because you work directly with the translator, you save time and money!

Professional translation at a fair price!
