From Miami to Lund – from home-office sole trader to AB at Ideon

Hailing from South Florida, I moved to Sweden in 2007 to study languages at Lund University. My translation career began in 2009 when I started Friedman Translation Services, and in 2011, I founded Lund Translation Team, a group of independent translators jointly marketing their services. I’ve had an office in Lund Entrepreneurship Center (LNC) at Ideon Science Park since 2013 and incorporated (AB in Sweden) in 2017 to accommodate the growth of my business. In 2018, rising demand for my translation services and an increasing focus on copywriting and copyediting services prompted me to wrap up Lund Translation Team and rebrand as Friedman Strategic Copy AB.
