English-Danish Translator


Since 2001 I have been operating as freelance translator, providing quality translations from English into Danish as well as a number of other services. These include editing, proofreading, linguistic consultancy and quality control assignments.

My aim is to deliver functional translations that bring the message efficiently across and to help ensure that the end-clients appear professional in their international communications. Well, at least in Danish.

With a postgraduate degree in Nordic Philology from University of Copenhagen in 2000, I moved to Ireland where I later started providing translations and other linguistic services. Because of my academic linguistic background I take quite an interest in the linguistic development of Danish, which means that it is quite important to me that the final products meet the highest possible standard and are idiomatically, and not the least grammatically correct.


My services include translation, editing, proofreading documentation within the following areas:

  • Technical: Operation and user manuals for machinery and automotive products

  • Medical, Pharmaceutical and Medico-technical: In vitro diagnostics, Medical instruments, Summaries of Product Characteristics, Patient Information Leaflets, Clinical trial protocol, Informed consent forms, Dental technology

  • Software & IT: Software localization, Website translation, User documentation
