I was born in Denmark and moved to the UK in 2008. In 2010 I started working as a website translator for a successful online retailer. I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time - with the right language! A local designer sunglasses webshop needed a Danish translator to localise their website, as they were looking to expand into the lucrative Danish market. I was excited to be able to use my language skill and my love of writing, as well as learning everything about the world of e-commerce. I continued working for Sunglasses Shop, which later became MyOptique Group, until February 2019 when I decided to start my own freelance translation business.
Since then I have worked on a number of interesting projects. These include software translation for a market leader in educational software, social media ads, an educational map quiz site, games apps, tourist brochures, email marketing, B2B marketing and online retail help content, just to name a few.
