Are you playng Russian roulette with your translations?

Working with an anonymous translator through an intermediary can be like playing Russian roulette – you never know what you’ll get. And just like with roulette, you may not get the same person or quality next time around – even if you got lucky at first.

Benefits

  • Consistent branding because I am always personally involved and establish terminology and tone
  • Consistent quality because you know who I am, how I work, and what I offer
  • Consistent deliveries because I can switch roles with my colleague to remain flexible
  • Consistent added value through suggestions for improvement and language consulting

No surprises

For starters, I craft a thorough brief about your business and target group to make sure I know you. In my Collaborative Translation Process, I serve as either the translator or the editor and team up with a colleague with matching expertise and experience to fill the other role. This is all documented in a quote, so you’ll know exactly what you’re getting. The only way you may be surprised is by how impressed your international clients are with your new English copy!

Am I the right choice for you?

If you need a translation from Swedish to English in financial communications, IT, or web copy, then you’ve come to the right place. Contact me even if you have another type of text – I only accept projects where I am confident I can do an excellent job and can document why. Otherwise, I may have a good contact to refer to you or collaborate with (read more in my core values). Or read my insider tips for finding the right translator yourself.
