About

My name is Tess Whitty and I help companies reach their target customers in Sweden by translating and localizing communication material, websites, software and more. I am a certified English into Swedish translator who combines my background in international marketing and IT with my linguistic skills, to localize your business communication and technical documentation for the Swedish market.

Before launching a full-time career as a translator over 10 years ago, I worked as a product marketing manager for a multinational telecom and IT company based in Sweden, making use of my education in international marketing and business communication. It was not until I moved to the US in 2001 that I realized I could work with my passion, languages and writing, and combine this with my educational and professional background, working as a freelance translator specializing in corporate communication, IT and software localization.

I am completely bilingual and bicultural and thrive on helping companies like yours localize communications to the Swedish market. I have worked with over 100 companies and organizations to develop culturally appropriate communications that resonate directly with Swedish or US consumers.
