Translation from English to Swedish

I specialise in marketing, transcreation and creative copy.

My goal is to create a text that sounds like it was written in Swedish to begin with, whilst still keeping
the same tone and style as the original text. For example, I can move, delete and add words and phrases,
move around, split and merge sentences and many other things – everything I can to make sure your text sounds just as good and natural in Swedish as it does in English. A really good translation shouldn't look
like a translation.

I'm a member of SFÖ (The Swedish Association of Professional Translators) and of course follow
their rules and regulations.

I own and work in:

  • SDL Trados 2015, Memsource and XTM
  • Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom and Illustrator
  • Squarespace
  • Wordpress

And can also work in:

  • MemoQ, Smartling and Wordbee
 

I translate things like:

  • Articles
  • Blogs and social media
  • Product descriptions
  • Film- and tv-synopses
  • Voiceover scripts
  • Advertising, slogans and taglines

Copywriting in Swedish

Do you have something to say, but aren't sure how to make it work
on paper? I can help you write professional, clear and efficient
texts in Swedish.

It can be things like texts for your website, a newsletter, or a script for an information film. We'll go through and
analyse your needs together: purpose and message, tone and style, target audience, etc.

All projects include at least three drafts (if needed) and I listen to all your feedback between each draft. Every
text is a collaboration and the goal is a final product that we're both happy with!

You can see my portfolio and examples of things I've written here (in Swedish).

ABOUT ME

About me


ABOUT ME

A little bit more about me and who I am

My name is Sofia Englund and I started Arctic Ink in 2012. The name symbolises my northern roots and the ink in a pen (and printer). I translate and write texts for clients all over the world: translation agencies, advertising agencies, production companies and other small to large businesses in different industries.

I've been writing since I was 5 years old and I have a broad education and experience in writing, languages and communication. I'm kind of addicted to learning new things and you can read more about my education and CPD here.

In a previous life, I worked in the London TV industry for four years (at Discovery, Viasat, Sky and Chello Zone). I've also been a Divemaster in Borneo, where I spent my days diving with sharks, turtles and other exotic creatures.

I've lived in English-speaking countries for more than 7 years in total (Australia 3 years + UK 4 years), and still live in a bilingual household. This means I have an intimate knowledge of the culture and really understand idioms, everyday phrases, cultural references and other things that easily become pitfalls for a translator.

These days, I live in the far south of Sweden with my British partner and our two adopted dogs. I love travelling, all kinds of animals, nature, literature, films and TV series, and to be creative in lots of different ways: write, photograph, edit images, design and illustrate. I also run a free book café in my little village with a group of fellow volunteers.
