Company bio

I started my translation company in 2016 after completing a bachelor's degree in Japanese studies at Stockholm University. Prior to that, I studied abroad for 5 years in Japan, where I finished a college education in translation and interpretation. 


My curiosity about foreign cultures and keen interest in linguistics give me the motivation, edge and skill that I need in my profession. I always make sure to produce texts with a natural flow, correct terminology and a suitable tone of voice based on the given target audience. At the same time, I focus on carrying across the source content and its unique style into the Swedish translation, without losing any nuances in the process.

My specialisations are tourism & travel, EU affairs and marketing. I mainly translate from English into Swedish, but I also translate from Japanese, Danish, Norwegian and German.

Should you be interested to know more about me, just let me know. I would be happy to send you a detailed CV upon request.


Thank you for your time!
