Translation – Transcreation

With two MA (60 credits each) in Comparative Literature and Translation, and experience as a content writer, journalist, critic, proofreader, and from the book publishing business, I’m now self-employed and look for clients and partners in translation, transcreation and copy writing.

Most of my projects involve online marketing, and I’ve a lot of experience with web shops, user interfaces for apps, and other translations where the tone of voice has particular importance. In the future, I also hope to strengthen my expertise in translation in relation to marketing and SEO.

I’m currently studying creative translation in a part-time Master’s programme in Literary Translation. Besides being a translator, I also work as a yoga teacher.
