Dear clients and colleagues,

As most of you know, I have spent one year back in my home country Sweden. This year is now coming to an end and I will be moving back with my family to our permanent home in Park City Utah.

What will this mean for you?
1. I will be on vacation, travelling and moving from July 15th to August 10th with limited access to email. I will provide a contact to a trusted colleague who can help you with Swedish translations during this time.

2. From August 10th I will be back in my office in Utah. There will be no new changes to my address and contact information, except that I will now be back in the MDT time zone. My business address changed in September 2012 and is:

Swedish Translation Services
PO Box 982816
Park City, UT 84098

During this year I have focused on taking writing and grammar classes in Sweden to make sure I use the most current and grammatically correct Swedish language, as the language keeps changing. I have also been networking with fellow translators in Sweden and have a larger network of colleagues here to discuss with and collaborate with when needed. I will continue to read Swedish newspapers, books and watch Swedish television and listen to Swedish radio from the US to maintain it, as usual. I plan to go back to Sweden every summer if possible and will let you know when I am in a different time zone again.

I have also decided to focus more on my core business and create more balance in my life. Therefore the future focus of this blog will be on news regarding my translation business. Thank you to all of you who have been following this blog and perhaps continue following. I will not disappear from the face of the earth when it comes to blogging, but I will narrow my focus and limit my time blogging.

With that, I would like to wish you all a great and relaxing rest of the summer!
