Swedish-English translations, UK
Peter Bowen BA MITI, authorised translator from Swedish into English
I provide Swedish-English translations from my London-based office. I am qualified to supply certified Swedish-English translations to be used in the UK or Sweden.
In 1986 I obtained a BA (hons) from the University of Bristol in Modern Languages (French and German). I also hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Technical and Specialised Translation from Polytechnic of Central London. This postgraduate qualification was received in 1991. I qualified in the languages: French, German, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and Greek.
Translation experience and languages offered
I have been working as a freelance Swedish-English translator since 1992. Apart from offering Swedish-English translations, I translate from Danish, Norwegian, German and French into English.
Membership of professional bodies
In 1994 I became a full member of ITI. I am a member of the Swedish Association of Professional Translators, SFÖ. I have been a state-authorised translator in Sweden since 2010 and am a member of the Swedish Federation of Authorised Translators, FAT. Due to the large network of translators I have established, I can take on projects in many language directions.

I undertake Swedish-English translations for businesses, government agencies and private clients. Having said that, the majority of my clients are SMEs.
With over 20 years’ experience, I specialise in a number of languages (Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, French and German into English) and subject areas:

In addition I offer Language revision in German and English. Clients for my Swedish-English translation services include limited companies, professional organisations, law firms, museums, academics, government agencies and private individuals.

Authorised/certified Swedish-English translations
I am a state-authorised translator in Sweden.
This means that I can stamp and authorise my own translations from Swedish into English. I can also authorise Swedish-English translations of official documents by other translators. As I am a qualified member of ITI, I can self-certify translations.
Please always bear in mind that different organisations have different requirements. Therefore, it is essential to find out what type of certification you need for the translation of your document before ordering the translation from me.
