Communications

When you are writing to an international market, the signals have to be right for the audience. Home-grown translation can’t do that. Phrasing imported directly over from Danish sounds strange to an English ear and it doesn’t capture the meaning you are trying to project. You need someone who not only writes really well in their native language, but really knows specific audiences. I have experience in publishing both for the well-informed general reader and for various kinds of specialist, and I will put what you mean – your ideas, not your words – into real English with the right signals.

What my clients say:

Lucy knows the target group and the phrases used in this world and she makes the language fit exactly. She takes sentences and pus them into real English.

Communications and Marketing Coordinator, Aarhus University

Lucy has a clear understanding of our subject area, and we always get more than ‘just’ a translation. Even with tight deadlines, Lucy always delivers high-quality translations and editing with improvements in both language and content.
