Professional objectives
  • Meet new translation company clients
  • Meet new end/direct clients
  • Work for non-profits or pro-bono clients
I help organizations attract and engage their audience with spot-on translation, editing, and writing in both Danish and English.

My strong solutions are based on extensive experience with this kind of work in both the private and public sector, an educational background with a focus on organizational communication, linguistics, and psychology, and the tailoring of my effort to the specific goals of your organization and its audience.


Here's a few of my accomplishments:

# Helped a number of companies engage their audience with high-quality copy and content through both more and less technical translation and proofreading work—all of it delivered on time and at expected quality.

# Engaged thousands of daily visitors on one of Denmark's largest affiliate-based media platforms (daily visitor numbers at 100,000+) in my role as web editor and social media manager.

# Significantly increased the number of applicants to the master’s program in Anthropology of Health at Aarhus University by developing and executing a targeted communications campaign.

# Was directly responsible for around 33% of the ticket sales for a large international tech and design conference having handled all social media accounts and press contact.

# Helped secure the full funding of several loans for a microfinance nonprofit through effective website copy and email marketing.

... But don't just take my word for it; here's what the clients say:
