My principal work is Swedish to English literary translation.

I can also provide:

  • Translation from Russian, Spanish, French into English
  • Proofreading and copy-editing English
  • Transcreation and original writing
  • Reader's reports and publishing proposals
  • Plain English summaries of foreign language texts
What are your specialist areas?

I specialise in literary translation, which includes fiction, non-fiction and journalism.

My main areas of work include:

  • fantasy and sci-fi fiction
  • young adult and children's fiction
  • politics & journalism
  • philosophy & religion
  • feminism & gender theory
  • yoga & dance
  • erotica
  • spirituality & the esoteric

To translate, one must have a style of his own, for the translation will have no rhythm or nuance, which come from the process of artistically thinking through and molding the sentences; they cannot be reconstituted by piecemeal imitation. The problem of translation is to retreat to a simpler tenor of one’s own style and creatively adjust this to one’s author.
