Translation Service

I love German and Norwegian and relish the challenge of turning texts written in those languages into clear, accurate English.

Translation projects I've worked on:

» business reports, clinical trial documention and marketing copy for agencies in the UK, Germany, Austria and Norway

» medical and legal documents for people moving to the UK from Norway

» estate agent’s details for a UK resident buying a holiday home in Norway

» in 2011 I translated a biography from German for publisher Lion Hudson

» in 2019 I translated articles and a poem for the book published to mark the opening of Norway’s new sculpture museum at Kistefos.

Proofreading/editing translations

I also check translations against the original copy for accuracy and fluency. One dream job involved checking the text of the catalogue for the 2005 Royal Academy exhibition of paintings by Munch, which had been written in German with Norwegian quotations! In 2013 I evaluated the translation of a book about the Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik.
