About Translator Scandinavia

High-quality translations since 1990

We have a long tradition of providing high-quality and sustainable translation services. We currently deliver 30 million translated words to hundreds of clients in various industries every year – with a focus on quality, efficiency and long-term relationships.

Quality, sustainability and modern technology were guiding principles from the start

Translator Scandinavia was founded in 1990 by serial entrepreneur Gunnar Carlsson. At the time, Gunnar was working with technical training for Swedish industry, and his clients often needed translations into different languages. Since Gunnar was fluent in Spanish, he started doing the translations from Spanish into Swedish himself. That’s how the idea of having his own translation agency was born.

Beside a roaring fire at a scout camp in the mid-1990s, Gunnar met our current CEO Cecilia Enbäck, who then became Translator Scandinavia’s first employee. The team grew shortly after, and on the cusp of the 21st century, it was made up of eight professional translators and project managers. Many of those who started working with us then are still with the company today.

As early as 1995, Translator Scandinavia signed a contract with the European Parliament and Commission and started delivering translations of very high quality. Becoming an accredited translation provider for the EU was very demanding, so we needed to develop methods and define how we worked with security and quality. We were imbued with a quality and safety mindset at an early stage, and this has remained with us throughout the years.

Gunnar came from a background in engineering – a proud mechanical engineer from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. From the start he saw the benefits of using technological solutions to improve the quality of translations while saving clients time and money. We started working with the first translation tools back in the late 1990s, and since then we’ve kept up to date with new technologies to improve and streamline our translations.

Quality, sustainability and modern technology have been our guiding principles from the start. Today, we deliver 30 million translated words to hundreds of clients in various industries every year – with a focus on quality, efficiency and long-term relationships.

We’re working to ensure longevity

Translator Scandinavia was founded over 30 years ago. From the very beginning, sustainability has been an integral part of our culture.

Where the world is concerned, it means using sustainable products, recycling everything we can and not buying unnecessary items – so that we leave as small a footprint as possible.

When it comes to our clients, it means that we’re constantly working to streamline our processes and use technology to save time and money throughout the project process.

And for our employees, it means a sustainable working life. Providing a place where they can grow in their profession while maintaining a good work-life balance, with the opportunity to combine work with caring for sick children, engaging in hobbies, taking sick animals to the vet and everything else that life entails.

Because we want our clients and employees to stay with us for a long time. And our excellent reviews and low staff turnover are proof that we’re doing things right.
