Hello! My name is Sofia and
I write and translate texts.

Creative translations from English to Swedish

I specialise in marketing, transcreation and creative adaptations. My goal is always to create a text that
looks like it was written in Swedish to begin with
, but still convey the same tone and style as the
source text
.

For example, I might move, delete and add words and phrases, or move, split and merge sentences – all to make sure that your text sounds just as good and natural in Swedish as it does in English. A good translation shouldn't look like a translation.

I'm a member of SFÖ (The Swedish Association of Professional Translators) and I follow their rules and regulations. I work in SDL Trados 2017, but I'm also used to MemoQ, Memsource and Smartling (and I learn new software easily).

Examples of things I translate:

- Websites
- Ads, slogans and taglines
- Articles and newsletters
- Blog posts, content marketing, social media
- Product descriptions
- Film and tv synopses and voiceover scripts


Copywriting in Swedish

I can help you write professional, clear and efficient texts in Swedish. It can be anything from website copy and newsletters to a script for an information film. We'll always talk through and analyse your needs together: purpose and message, tone and style, target audience, etc. All texts are a collaboration and
the goal is a final product that we're both happy with.

Sofia Englund - English to Swedish translator

My name is Sofia Englund and grew up in Luleå in the far north of Sweden. I started Arctic Ink in 2012, and the name symbolises my northern roots and the ink in a pen. I write and translate texts for clients all over the world: translation agencies, advertising agencies, production companies, and other small to large businesses in different industries.

I have a broad education and experience in languages, communication and creative writing, and I've also lived in English-speaking countries for more than seven years. Besides studying film and media in Australia for three years, I've also worked in TV operations in London for four years (at Discovery, Viasat and Sky). I still live in a bilingual household, which means that I have an intimate knowledge of the culture and really understand idioms, slang, cultural references and other things that are
often tricky for translators.

I've also been a Divemaster in Borneo, where I spent my days diving with sharks, turtles and other exotic creatures, but now I live in a little village in the south of Sweden with my British partner. I like travelling, gardening, animals and nature, literature, films and TV series, and to be creative in lots of different ways: write, photograph, edit images, design and illustrate.

Sofia is THE person you want to have in your team!
