I have been a full-time freelance translator in the Seattle area since 1997. I have published many literary translations from Norwegian, Danish, and Swedish into US English, and I routinely work with clients from North America and Europe to Japan and the Middle East.

Literary Translation

I have published many translations, all into US English and tailored to the distinct expectations of readers in the huge North American book market. If you are a publisher or have secured world English or North American rights to a Scandinavian title, please contact me to discuss your translation project and how we can work together to target the North American and related book market.
