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.

I use translation memory software (Trados) and online dictionaries to work more quickly, efficiently and, for you, economically.

Editing & Proofreading

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.


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!
