About me

 

My company, CommunicAID, is a language services agency based outside Lund/Malmö in Sweden. The company began life as EducAID as long ago as 1994 and was, at that time, then mainly engaged in language courses. The change of name to CommunicAID in 1999 reflected a broadening of its activities towards full-time comprehensive language consultancy services.


I now offer complete language support to individuals, companies, organisations, institutions and the academic world. Services include translations, language review, proofreading, editing, copywriting, training, and voiceovers. I have also taught on courses aimed at improving the writing skills of doctoral students.


CommunicAID is a well-established language consultancy with an extensive track record across both the private and public sectors. No assignment is too big or too small, and commissions have ranged from short texts for advertisements up to project reports and books of over 50,000 words.


I’m a graduate of Birmingham University, UK, where my academic studies focused on the environmental sciences, particularly physical geography, biogeography, ecology, and geology. These fields now form my specialist area as a language consultant, but I also have considerable academic and professional experience in the social sciences and other fields.


I’m also a qualified teacher and spent 20 years in the profession, including two years as a head teacher. My experience as a teacher, including preparation of original educational materials, provided me with a solid foundation for writing concise, clear and easy-to-understand texts, and my teaching skills are also put to good use in practical training workshops.


I’ve lived in Sweden since 1980, switching from teaching to full-time language consultancy in 1999. I’m a full member of the Swedish Association of Professional Translators.


Please take a look at the range of services, examples of assignments, and client comments. I offer a professional and friendly service, with fast turnaround for writing assignments, at reasonable rates.
